Can I have two separate accounts on my computer?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I currently have a business account. My Dropbox folder is on a 5400rpm drive, which is fine for most files. I also edit video, so I have two 7200rpm drives, one at home and one at work, for my video files. I'm currently bringing the work drive home and copying new files to my home drive but I'd like to know if I could sync the two drives using a separate Dropbox account (business or personal).

You can have two accounts on the same computer, but one can be Personal and one Business and they have to be linked.

Thanks, but I'm  not sure how to create a personal account. Do I have to log out of my business account first?

You should be able to just go to www.dropbox.com and sign up for one - if it is giving issues with it maybe try an incognito window

You can also click on the menu button in the bottom-left corner of Dropbox.com- it should show your Business account name. It should then give you an option to create a personal (this is where you will be easily able to switch between the two once it is created).
