How can I delete a Dropbox account without access to the email address?

How can I delete a Dropbox account without access to the email address?

Explorer | Level 4

Hello Dropbox. I have an old account that is associated with my current email address that I would like to delete. I was one of the unfortunate ones to have his Yahoo hacked, so I have had no access to any apps and etc. linked with that email address. I have since activated a new email and new Dropbox account. Is it possible to delete the old Dropbox account without access to the email address it is linked to? I have already tried contacting Yahoo to delete the old account with no success. Any info would be helpful, thanks for your time.

I'm not 100% sure to be honest. Have you tried to follow https://help.dropbox.com/accounts-billing/create-delete/delete-account ?

 

If not dont panic Dropbox auto deletes unused accounts after a time period
