Re: Desktop App?

Hey there @Waterdoc  - how are you today?

From what I understand, you'd like to connect both your personal and business accounts on your device and access them via the desktop application - right?

To connect your personal and work Dropbox please follow these steps:

  1. Log in to https://www.dropbox.com/ with your Dropbox Business account login.
  2. Click on your name in the top right corner.
  3. Click “Connect your personal Dropbox”.

You'll be asked if you already have a personal Dropbox account. If you do, please sign in to your account or if you don't, you'll be given the option to create a personal account.

Follow the instructions to download the Dropbox desktop application and start using both your personal and work accounts on your computer.

I hope this information helps and please keep me posted on your progress! 

PS: This is available to Dropbox Business users and members of a free team (i.e. they can have both a personal and work Dropbox on any computer, mobile device, and on dropbox.com).
