A friend has shared some concert photographs with me via Dropbox & I have them in my Dropbox folder on my iPad. She may need to delete the photos from her Dropbox to free space. Will the photos also disappear from my folder & if so is there a way I can retain copies before this is done?

Just move them to a non-shared folder – Paul Jan 22 '13 at 23:31
@Paul or, indeed, to one of Annjay's own Dropbox folders rather than one shared with them. – Darael Jan 23 '13 at 0:07
@Darael yeah, that was what I meant! – Paul Jan 23 '13 at 0:09
@Paul right, yes, I do apologise; I got distracted and commented on the question when I meant to comment on Xavierjazz's answer. – Darael Jan 23 '13 at 0:10

To retain them, copy them to another folder on your computer.
