Transfer ownership folders

It is possible to transfer ownership of personal files. Why not the same option available for folders ? Of course including the files involved

    While this sounds easy to do and logical, the truth is that Connections folders are designed differently from the ground up compared to folders on a file system.

    Connections folders are a collection of references to files that could exist anywhere, e.g. they could be owned by other users and only be shared with the current folder you are looking at.

    That is why the changing of ownership of the entire folder including the referenced files within is not possible or at least doable in a way that users will easily understand.
