Yes of course 🙂

 

However you can only add one to your computer to sync at one time

Well, I'd like to have to so I could add files to either one, but I could only actually use one of them?

So the solution would be to use two different computers?

Ok, that might work.

I'll just need a new email address to use for the second computer, right?

Yes thats correct. One email address per Dropbox account/log on. 

 

The other thing to remember though is if you have a free account and a paid account and share between them the free account is limited to the size of its quota NOT the size of a shared folder's account

Could I then login to both accounts from the same computer and copy files between them?

Hi @Scst, it won't be possible to have two personal accounts signed into Dropbox at the same time. 

You could technically have another computer profile/login and Dropbox installed there with the other Dropbox account signed in. You'd need to login to the profile each time you want files to sync.

Since quota can't be shared from a paid account to a Basic account, could you clarify why you need to have two separate Dropbox accounts? 

There may be another solution which might be beneficial to yourself.
