2 separate dropbox accounts are syncing, I wnat them to stop!

Hi, I have 2 separate email addresses, and somehow I ended up starting two different Dropbox accounts, each using a separate email address. This isn't a problem in and of itself, except that I seem to have linked/shared some of the files and folders in my "primary" Dropbox account with the second one. What I want to happen is to stop them syncing (or sharing?), & remove access to the files/folders from the secondary account (but NOT from the primary account). Note that these files and folders don't exist on my PC, just in Dropbox. I'm not very teccy, so thanks for your advice in anticipation.

Hello @DRCS, thanks for checking in with us. 

Generally, each Dropbox account is associated with a unique email address. 

If you've shared content with the secondary account via shared folders/files, you can remove it by following these steps

Could you give that a try and let me know how it goes? 

Cheers!
