I have two drop box accounts.  One personal and just opened a plus account.

I need to join the two, but have files in my personal ones that I want to transfer.  Can I join the two without loosing anything?

Hello @Sandra777. Happy to see you joined our Community! 

Welcome! 

Yes you can! Very simple. Make sure that you share all your folders from your free email/Dropbox account with the new Dropbox Plus account. 

You can also change the owner of the folders and transfer the owner rights from one account to the other, if you wish.  

Good luck! We are always here to answer more questions. 

Thank you!
