I've had a personal account for years - connected to the dropbox desktop app. My company recently started using dropbox for business. How can I get a desktop app to connect to/sync with files on my business account.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have been using dropbox personal for over 5 years. I am now connected with a company that uses dropbox business. I have now connected my 2 accounts, but the files from dropbox business do not show up on my desktop. It says once the accounts are connected, clicek preferences under your profile. I do not have this option under either account. It says I've updated to the newest version of dropbox. Any idea on what I'm doing wrong?
I've followed the above instructions, and have linked my personal and business account, but it does not sync my business files to my desktop. How do I get that to happen?
It says once the accounts are connected, clicek preferences under your profile. I do not have this option ...
Dropbox Preferences are found within the Dropbox app on your computer. Click the Dropbox icon in your system tray (Windows) or menu bar (Mac), click your avatar in the upper-right corner, then you'll find Preferences on the menu that is displayed.
I have opened a new business account and want to drag to move files but cant see the dropbox icon to do so. I can see the icon from my personal one but not new business one.

Hi. I've had a free account for some time, which I just use for a few diaries, personal spreadsheets etc. using my personal email address.
A work colleague has just invited me (and others) to share his dropbox for a project we are collaborating on. He's invited me via my work email address.
I'm on a Mac running OS 10.15.1 Catalina. I have the desktop application installed for my personal dropbox.
For this business dropbox, do i download the Dropbox app again? Or am i going to have to sign out of dropbox and back in every time I want to look in the 'other' dropbox?
Hi there @P_Ri, thanks for reaching out to us here!
If you have a personal and business account, you can sync both of them to the same desktop app installation.
You'll first need to "connect" the accounts and then you'll be able to link your business account to the desktop app. You can check out all the steps to do this from here.
Let me know if you have any other questions- thanks!
