Just hover over a folder's Member text to see the collaborators

To find who you've shared a folder with, you'll need to open the Dropbox web app. Go to dropbox.com, sign into your account, and you'll see a icon with two people icons on each shared folder—and the number of people you've shared the folder with on the right.

Just hover over that text, and Dropbox will show the names of the people who the folder is shared with.

Edit Dropbox folder sharing options

That's enough for to jog your memory. Want to change the folder, perhaps removing one of the collaborators or adding a new one? Click the Share button, then tap the menu beside each collaborator's name to edit the sharing permissions.
