Is it possible to rename the Dropbox folder to Dropbox instead of Dropbox (Personal)?

Is it possible to rename the Dropbox folder to Dropbox instead of Dropbox (Personal)?

Article https://help.dropbox.com/business/paired-account-folder-path states:

For existing clients, when the user links a second account, we will also create a hidden symlink in the old Dropbox location that points to the first account that was linked. E.g.:

Dropbox -> /Users/<USERNAME>/Dropbox (<BUSINESS_NAME>)
Dropbox (<BUSINESS_NAME>)
Dropbox (Personal)

 

Is it possible to link Dropbox to Dropbox (Personal) instead of Dropbox (<Business_name>)? This peculiarity is one of the most annoying things that basically makes me use company account via browser...

No. Dropbox has no way to rename the Dropbox folders (either personal or business). You may have success recreating the symlinks yourself, but that's not supported and could cause problems with the Dropbox software.
