Re: Different drop box accounts

Different drop box accounts

I have two drop box accounts, one I use for personal and one I use for work.

 

The dropbox app (I use a Mac) keeps defaulting to my personal DB.  I cannot change it to link to my other work DB, I want the app to link to my work account and synchronise files for work.  There does not seem to be a way of logging off and on on the app, and I have tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but it always automatically defers to my personal.  I am very frustrated I cant seem link to my work DB.  I can get to both my accounts using the browser but this is inconvenient.  Please help

You need to unlink the account from Dropbox - go to Preferences -> Account and then tap 'Sign Out' via the software on your desktop. Then move everything out of the Dropbox folder, reinstall and log in with the work email. You'll be all set then 🙂
