Use Dropbox folder for multiple users on Mac

Use Dropbox folder for multiple users on Mac

Norha
Explorer | Level 3

I have 4 users (admin) on one Mac (iMac 2020, running on Catalina, 10.15.7) and would like to use only use one dropbox folder for all 4 users. I tried these steps: https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Dropbox-installs-integrations/Multiple-Mac-User-Accounts-one-Dropbox... but always end up not being able to create another folder in the same directory.

The dropbox folder is over 300GB big, so having 4 copies flying around the HD is simply not an option (and is also absurd). Please help, thanks!

Hi @Norha; thanks for posting on our Community and sorry to hear you're having issues with this.

Since it sounds like you're referring to a shared computer, can you please clarify if this regarding an individual Dropbox account or a Team account? 

Thanks!
