Can the 1TB data with Plus Plan be shared between two or more personal accounts?

Explorer | Level 3

I am a member of a dropbox account, recently updated to the plus plan but I still have only 2GB of data. Is  It possible to share the 1TB of data via  so I may edit our shared folders?

No you cant access the space of another account. Same as you couldnt benefit from the upgrades of a cabin upgrade a friend bought if you were on the same flight, or, the supersizing of his meal at McDonalds if you were on the same transaction. He has upgraded. You havent.

You CAN trial a Business Plan (but note that it has a minimum seat licence of three) so I'd say its probably cheaper (and easier) for you just to upgrade to the $9.99/$99 plan rather than having three accounts paying $12.50pm.

That’s correct, the only plans that have a shared quota pool are Dropbox Business teams, which might not be suitable for your purposes.

Thanks for the responses. I still dont understand fully, Even as a member of ( X ) account, I cant use the data bought by another account member? (only two of us). Whats the purpose of having an account for multiple members therefore? The Standard business plan is probably the right option for me at this point. Since the subscription is new, is it possible to switch over from plus at the present moment, as if I 'try for free' for a month I may end up wuth an unwanted Plus subscription... Thanks
