What happens if I delete files and folders with a valid shared link?

Moving or Deleting Shared Files and Folders

If shared files and folders are moved or deleted, attempting to access the share link will display an error stating that the file cannot be found.

The sharing settings themselves will remain, so if a file with the same name and path is uploaded, the new file will be accessible through the existing share link.

Please be careful to disable sharing for files and folders before moving or deleting them in order to prevent unintended sharing of files.
