Installin clean copy of windows will unlink my dropbox account from that computer?

New member | Level 2

Would Installing a clean copy of windows unlink my Dropbox account from the computer? As I have this computer linked to my free account would I be able after reinstalling windows and Dropbox to link the Dropbox account again to my free account. Note that I have more than three PCs connected to this free account.

Thank you

Hi,

If you already have more than 3 connected device then no, sorry, you wont be able to reconnect this one if you reinstall Windows. 

You would need to disconnect other devices to bring you installs down to 2 to enable you to do so or upgrade to a paid plan.
