This is a serious need... if a folder owner is trusted with the authority to set permission levels for new links, logically they need the ability to reset existing links to bring those into compliance. Currently there is no way to get a folder into compliance if policies become more restrictive.
From what I understand, users can currently restrict all existing links through Account Settings> Sharing> Shared Links> "Allow Shared Links for", by setting that dropdown to "Nothing, restrict sharing"
However, that disables the ability to share links altogether (existing or new), AND if you later change that setting to something less restrictive, the old links are restored with their original settings. That forces a folder owner to abandon external collaboration capability across a huge body of documents if they need to address security concerns buried (and nearly impossible to locate) throughout the folder.
