I was invited to a shared folder
If you have been granted access to a folder, a copy of it will appear on your Yandex.Disk. Depending on the access rights to the shared folder, users can do the following:
- Each authorized user can rename and move shared folders on their personal Yandex.Disk. This does not affect granted or received access rights.
- Authorized users can revoke their own access right to a shared folder by deleting the copy from their own Yandex.Disk.
- A user with Read-only access can view and download files from a shared folder.Note. If you can't modify or delete a file from a shared folder, ask the owner for full access to the folder.
When you make changes to a shared folder, such as renaming or adding a file, all authorized users can see your changes. Information about the changes is also displayed in History on their Yandex.Disk.
How can I quickly access a shared folder?
You can see the list of folders that you have granted or gained access to on the Shared folders page. Each shared folder is marked with the icon.
Do other people's folders take up space on my Yandex.Disk?
No, a shared folder takes up space only on its owner's Disk. Once you accept the invitation, the service copies the folder to your Yandex.Disk, but space occupied by the folder isn't counted. This means you can accept an invitation to access a folder of any size, regardless of the space available on your Yandex.Disk.
If you run out of space on your Disk, you won't be able to upload files to a shared folder, even if you are not the owner of this folder. If you want to be able to upload files to a shared folder, make sure you have free space on your Yandex.Disk.
Collaborate on documents
If the document owner grants you full access to the folder with the document, you can edit the document together.
The changes made while editing are saved automatically. In the upper right corner of the screen, you can see who is currently working on the document.
If you received a link to a document that you want to edit but you can't, ask the owner to give you full access to the document.
I can't upload a file to a shared folder
Most likely, there's no more free space on your or the folder owner's Yandex.Disk.
When there's no more space on your Yandex.Disk, access to Yandex.Disk is restricted. To remove these restrictions, delete unnecessary files, empty the Trash (files in the Trash also take up space), or buy more storage space. Otherwise, your access to Yandex.Disk will be blocked in 44 days, and in another 6 months, all your files will be deleted forever. You can learn more about these restrictions in Yandex.Disk storage space.
