- Is it possible to take ownership of a shared folder?
- We had been subscribing to iCloud 2TB & family sharing, my partner subscribed to Apple 1 we find we are paying for iCloud in addition to Apple 1. I need to transfer my files to her shared iCloud under Apple 1 and close my iCloud subscription. I have ~ 200GB to shift & my upload is 20mb/s. I could just delete iCloud and have everything resync.
Or I could put all my iCloud in a folder in iCloud, share that folder to her account then copy or move the content from the shared folder to another to then share back to me on her family shared iCloud, but I think it would still just remain shared and would just die when I delete my original iCloud loosing all my data unless I can take ownership of that shared folder in another account, hence the question 🙂
