2 Computers with 2 different Dropbox Accounts

2 Computers with 2 different Dropbox Accounts

New member | Level 2

I have a laptop and a desktop.  Apparently, I inadvertently set up 2 different accounts on Dropbox.  One is "sdfho" and the other is sdfhou.  This is causing a problem because I only want 1 Dropbox account.  I need my desktop to be my main computer and want to save some of these files to Dropbox in order to work on them from home on my laptop.  

 

Because now I have 2 different accounts, I cannot access one account from the other!  

 

I need to fix this so that I only have one account or be able to access both accounts from either computer!

 

Thanks,

Steve

One one of your computers, sign out of wrong account. Rename the Dropbox folder to Dropbox.old or similar. Sign in with the correct account.
