Merging two accounts - Dropbox Plus and Basic

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I have two dropbox accounts, with different email addresses, one is dropbox account is the basic one, the other is the dropbox plus.  I want to merge the newest account (which is the basic one) to the other dropbx plus account, but use the latest email address (which holds the basic account).  How do I do this, please?

Hi @kayjen25. Thanks for posting your first question! 

The easiest way to go about this is to share all the folders from your Basic account to the Plus and then transfer ownership of the folders to the Plus account as well. 

Steps to change the owner of a shared folder are outlined here

This way you will have all your data merged in your Dropbox Plus!

Get back to me for any questions. Cheers!
