Hey there @Exclaim-Palmer!
 
I just wanted to clarify that in order to pair accounts, one account must indeed be subscribed to a Dropbox Business plan and the other connected to a Basic/Plus/Professional plan. To find out which plan your account is under, please navigate to your Plan tab
 
Currently, there isn’t a way to pair two Basic accounts. You can find more info on this in the link that @Rich posted, and this one too for future reference. 
 
Hope this helped to some extent.

Have you connected your personal and business accounts on the Dropbox website yet? If not, you need to do that first, then you can sync both to your computer in separate Dropbox folders.

Hmmm, nothing seemed to work. I have 2 basic accounts, 1 Basic Home (email) Acct & 1 Basic Work (email) Account. These are not Business Level Accounts. When I follow the instructions from the link to:

1. Sign in to dropbox.com with your Dropbox Business account credentials.
2. Click your avatar at the top-right corner of the page.
3. Select Settings.
4. Click Connect under Connect your personal Dropbox....
...there is no button or section called "Connect your personal Dropbox."

It also seems that when I'm signed into my PERSONAL Account, upon trying to open a fresh window & signed in again to my WORK account, when I do, the previous PERSONAL Account Window now converts to the WORK Account.

Sorry about my confusion. I just wanted to have 2 basic accounts (work email & a home email thatI could see both folders independently on my desktop & not get the 2 areas convaluted or confused.

Thanks for the extremely clear clarification of my problem Lusil. I had began to believe that this might be my hang-up. Your explanation of that clears up everything. Thanks a million. Problem not averted but now solved.
