I can't remember my account mail. I have private links to many of the photos I shared from that account. Can I find my account based on these?
Hi there @Kubrick3, thanks for posting!
You wouldn't be able to find the email address for your Dropbox account from the shared links of that account I'm afraid.
What I could suggest is having a look in your email inbox to see if you have any emails from Dropbox.
Otherwise, for the email addresses that you have access to, you can try requesting a password reset from here. An email will only be sent if there is an account under the email entered there.
I hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions!

I cannot remember my mail in any way and I think there is no other way. Will things in that account be deleted when the account is inactive?
Thanks for getting back to me here @Kubrick3!
It should be under one of your email accounts, since you would have had to verify the email address to be able to share from the account.
If the account is not accessed in a long period of time, then it can be deleted due to inactivity. You can check out more info about this here, if you want to.
Other than trying to request the password reset for each of the email addresses that you currently have access to, there isn't much else I could suggest.
Do you have any devices still connected to your Dropbox account, through the desktop or mobile apps?
