Hey hemituner, as we can only work on account-specific matters via our Official Support channel (we’ll need to investigate sensitive account-related info in more depth), I’ve made sure to run a search on our system on my end, I’ve located your newest open ticket & I can see that you’re currently discussing it with my colleague there. 
 
I’ve included your comments & rest assured that you’re in safe hands. 
 
I hope that this is helpful to you & please include all relevant details on that email chain, as they can access your account specifics there & they can further advise how to best resolve the issue you’re facing. Thanks!

You need to contact the team admin of the Business account and ask them to convert your account back to an individual account.

Unless you are a business user at the correct level there is none I'm afraid.

www.dropbox.com/support to log and http://dropbox.zendesk.com to track issues are the only way.

In terms of compromised, how? What makes you think that?

If you believe your account in compromised, you should go to your Security page and change your password. Then check the list of devices and web browser sessions that are associated with your account and remove any that you don't recognize.

 

Beyond that, you'll need to contact Support directly as only they can assist with account related matters.

 

Open your ticket here: https://dropbox.com/support
Track your ticket here: https://dropbox.zendesk.com

Replies take approximately 1 - 3 business days with Plus, Professional and Business users getting priority (longer for Basic users). If you have a Business account that includes chat and/or phone support, those options are available in your Admin console by clicking Help.

Is my entire DB folder available for the team to view??? How do I figure it out?

You'll still need to contact Support using the information above, but the admin for the business account will still need to approve the restoration of your account back to a personal account. This is because, after joining a team, the account now belongs to the business; it's no longer a personal account.

 

The easiest way to have it restored is to contact the team admin for the account as they have the ability to restore it back to a Personal account. If they can't or won't do it, you'll need to contact Support directly to see what they can do.

By adding my folder do the admins have access to the contence of the folder even if I didnt share it with them?

Quite possibly.

It depends upon what sort of Team and account you have joined.

You may be able to leave it by following https://www.dropbox.com/help/business/account-deleted-from-team

But, if not you need to log a ticket and ask for support.

If you've merged your account into the team, then the account and any data within it is accessible by the team admins. Even if your data doesn't appear within the team folder, the admins have the ability to sign-in as you to access the content of the account.
