Hi Pierre, I hope you don’t mind if I jump in. 

 

I’d also recommend creating a shared folder in this case, and sharing it between the two accounts. This way, you can move files from one Dropbox account to the other easily, without the need to download/re-upload anything. You can also check this Help Center article for all the steps.

 

Since the accounts will get separated at some point, you can create this shared folder from the Dropbox account you’re going to keep later on, so that you can automatically have the ownership of the folder and make the process easier.

Thanks, Mark - but this does not resolve my issue: I just was not specific enough in the description of the case.

These two Dropbox are intended to be 'separated' soon, with each being maintained by a different Manager. I could load what is needed from my computer data base into the second box - but as it is quite large I was wondering whether there was a more convenient way to achieve this.
