Hello

I have been using my email for Dropbox account. However, my email will be expired and need to change with the new email.

I would like to know if I change my user email, do my current files in Dropbox also be deleted?

 

Thank you for reading my discussion

Hi @hanhwa 

 

As long as you change the email at www.dropbox.com/account it will just update that.... so everything will stay as it was and only your log on email will change

You probably wont be able to @Leecad2369 

 

So I'd suggest just unlinking it and setting up a brand new account with the correct email 🙂
