Configure shared access to a folder
You can create 50 public folders and accept an invitation to 50 folders of other users.
Access to a folder
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.
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.
Managing shared folders
I can't configure access or upload a file to a shared folder
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.
