closing 1 of 2 accounts

Hi there,

 

I have 2 DropBox accounts, associated with two different emails. Account A is associated with my preferred email address, but does not have stuff I want or need on it. Account B is associated with an email address I don't use for work, but is full of lots of important stuff I need.

 

Can I delete Account A, and THEN change the email address in Account B to the email address that used to be associated with Account A? And in closing Account A, do I run any risk of losing Account B? Or are they completely, safely separate?

 

thanks,

J

That's entirely on yours! Be careful. 🤔 Is there something shared?

 

Hope this clarifies matter.
