transfer folders/files from personal accounts to plus account

Explorer | Level 3

Hi,
I am trying to transfer the files and folders from two personal accounts to my PLUS account.  
I have two computers, desktop and laptop.   For some reason, I cannot the plus account from my windows explorer, I get the files from my personal account in the folders.  Thus, I want to transfer the files from the personal account and discontinue the personal account so the only dropbox account i would be using would be my plus account.

I have researched this but not getting anywhere with the procedure to do this.  Yes, I know I can go to browser, sign in with personal or with the plus account, depending upon need.  However, I do not want to do this. I want one account.
So, sum:  1. Transfer files from personal accounts to PLUS account 2. Delete personal accounts 3. Access my PLUS account on both computers from the windows explorer tool.
Thanks so much

Hi @buzzbuzz 

So the easiest way to do this is to create shared folders between the Dropbox accounts on your computer and your Plus one. You'll need to accept them in the Plus account, however, via the website. 

After you have done that you can then go to here to unlink and uninstall Dropbox from your computer. 

Let it do its thing and then delete the 'Dropbox' folders before reinstalling from www.dropbox.com/downloading using the new account credentials.
