Hey there @ksand - how are you today?

To directly get to the chase, no, you won't lose access to any of your shared folders as you'll be on the same account practically - only with another email address. Don't worry, the change will be reflected upon your shared folders.

As you probably know, you can change your account settings (including your name, email, and password) on the Dropbox website. To go to your Dropbox account settings, first sign in to the Dropbox website at: https://www.dropbox.com

Click your account icon in the top right corner, and choose Settings from the menu. IIf you'd like to change your name or email address, choose the General tab, or go to the following page: https://www.dropbox.com/account

If you'd also like to change your Dropbox password, click on the Security tab, or go to the following page:  https://www.dropbox.com/account/security

Note that you only need to make these changes once. Any changes you make automatically apply to any computers or mobile devices linked to your account.

I hope this helps and please keep let me know if you have any more questions; I'll be happy to follow up.
