To remove a file or folder from a share:

Warning: If you only want to remove a shared file or folder from being shared under the "Shared by Me" tab, Do Not Click Delete. Deleting doesn't just remove the file from the shared list; deleting deletes the file.

  1. To remove a file from a share, check the box next to the file or folder and click "Share".

  2. Click "Share" on the drop down list.

  3. The following screen appears. Click the check box next to the file or folder, then click "Delete".


    This removes the file or folder from the Share list, and the file still exists.

Share a file using a file link


If you have a file too large to e-mail, you can share the file using a file link.

Select the drop down arrow next to the File you wish to share using a file link.  Select "Email Link".

Your web browser may block the pop up to allow Outlook to open with the file links.  You may have to "Allow" pop-ups.

Your file will then be available via a file link in Outlook.  You can then e-mail the link to your intended recipient who can then either view or download the file to their own computer.
