In Box, how do I transfer ownership of a folder to a different account?

To transfer ownership of files or folders you own to another Box account:

  1. Find the folder for which you want to transfer ownership, and click in that folder's row to select it.
  2. In the list on the right, look for the name of the user or account to which you want to transfer ownership, to see if that account is already a collaborator on the folder. If the account is already a collaborator, skip to step 5.
  3. In the column on the right, from the Share this Folder drop-down menu, select Invite Collaborators.
  4. Enter the email address of the account to which you want to transfer ownership, and then click Send Invites.
  5. Once the account has accepted your invitation, click the three dots next to the account you wish to promote to owner, and change that account's current permissions to Owner.
  6. In the pop-up that appears, click Okay to confirm that you will no longer own the content, and your permission level will be changed to Editor.
