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

Moving or Deleting Shared Files and Folders

Attempting to access a shared file or folder after it has been moved or deleted will result in an error message stating the file cannot be located. 

The sharing options, on the other hand, will stay unchanged. If a file with the same name and path is uploaded in this situation, the new file will use the existing share link to access it. 

To avoid any future unintentional sharing, please be cautious when deactivating sharing functions for files and folders prior to moving or deleting them.
