I'm using the SOAP envelope below to retrieve Data Extension folders and subfolders in a Business Unit, which works fine. However, it doesn't return any folders that exist in the Shared Data Extensions folder. Does anyone know if this is possible?

In simple filter, replace dataextension with shared_dataextension
