I recently merged my Personal Plan with my works Business Plan. When I realised this merged all my files, I asked my admin to unlink my account. That was successful, but I am now trying to buy a new Personal Plan and can't, as when I do, the following dropbox error message comes up as: "A user with this email already exists."

If the admin removed you from the team without converting the account back to a personal account for you, then you'll probably need to wait seven days before you can create an account with the same email address. That's the amount of time that the admin has to restore your account.
Thats very helpful thank you. My Admin went through the unlinking process with Dropbox live chat and they didn't mention that as an option – they simply suggested unlinking my email address. It's been a frustrating process as I still have no access to my files. When someone receives an invite from their Admin, Dropbox must be clearer with the options they provide. Judging by the amount of people with this same issue, its clearly something that needs reviewing.
