Multiple Dropbox Accounts

Multiple Dropbox Accounts

New member | Level 2

I have a Dropbox account under my e-mail.  It now shows up as a folder under a DropBox account that I'm a member of.  What will happen when I'm no longer a member of the other account, I'm worried about loosing my saved files.  Is there a way that you can keep your various dropbox accounts that you are a member in from combining?

Re: Multiple Dropbox Accounts


Hey @maijam; welcome to our Community!


It seems like you joined a Dropbox for Teams account using your own, personal account instead of creating a new one upon the on-boarding process. Please, correct me if I got anything wrong here.  


On occasions like this, the best way to resolve it would be to contact the team's admin and ask them to convert your account back to an individual one. 


From there, they can invite you to the team using another email address of yours, that is not already associated with a Dropbox account. 


Let me know if this helps!
