I have a personal account and I want to use a business account where I can share files with other accounts. How do I do this without needing to pay for two accounts (personal and business)?

Hey there @DrAston - welcome to our Community!

At first, note that your email address is your username for Dropbox. To have two Dropbox accounts, you'll just need two email addresses and the plan that your accounts will be one is up to you; meaning that you can keep them both even at the Basic plan which comes for free - always depending on your needs that is. 

Let me know if I'm missing something!
