How can I uninstall my work Dropbox folder without removing my personal one?

My personal and work accounts are linked and I have separate folders for them on my hard drive. How do I uninstall/remove my work folder without removing my personal folder, as well?

Hey there @jlafontaine - sorry for the tardy response; are you still having issues with this?

 

To disconnect your accounts please navigate to your account settings and under "Connected Dropboxes" you will see an option to disconnect your personal and work accounts.

 

If you disconnect your paired accounts then the account that was linked to your devices second will be unlinked from those devices.

 

 Should you wish to do that from your desktop app directly, please follow these steps:

 

1) Right-click the Dropbox icon in the system tray, or menu bar, by the clock
2) Click on the gear icon in the Notifications panel and select 'Preferences' > 'Account'
3) Find your work account and click the 'Unlink' button

 

Note that this way you'd still have your accounts connected as this is a local setting and specific to the computer where you take these actions on. 

 

I hope this information helps and I remain at your disposal. If you need anything else, just let me know. Thanks in advance and happy Monday!

Thank you for getting back to me, Walter! I was able to walk through this just fine so thank you for your assistance! Definitely wouldn't have found that on my own
