Change the name of my dropbox

Change the name of my dropbox

Explorer | Level 4

I was originally on a project where they started the dropbox, it has been several years and I am still connected to the Team and that name on dropbox - eventhough I am a solo-entrepaneur. So I need to change the name to my own business. Not my name and e-mail in settings, they are correct. But the actual dropbox name - AND I need to delete the Team folder from my dropbox.

Can anybody help? I have read several questions and anwers, but none of them seems to answer my problem.

Hey @pernvarde! Thanks for joining Community. 

Happy to help you with your first thread.  I understand you are in a free team and you need to leave the free team folder. There is no admin console to rename the free team. I suggest to simply leave the free team and the folder all together.  

You can find a free team overview and all the steps you need to drop the team here

Let me know how this goes!

When I leave the free/empty group, then it says that it will remove all my content to my personal account. 

My work account has the wrong name - originally named after the project of the free group. 

Can I change that name? 

How will leaving the free group affect my work account?

Nope. You can't change the name of the team after it becomes a free team. Leaving the free team, only removes the free team folder, you mentioned you didn't need, but nothing else will be affected.

Okay, that is empty so I can do that.

But my whole dropbox is also named after that project, and I would also like to change that name to my own company name.

Is that possible?

After you leave the free team, your account will be an individual Dropbox account again. To change the name of an individual account please visit your account setting online.

Here is direct link to your settings on Dropbox.com
