My husband and I have two Dropbox personal accounts. They are under two different email addresses. One is basically shared between the two of us, the other is mine with my own files on it. In the past, I have had the "shared" account on our iMac desktop, it shows up on the top bar with the Dropbox icon as well as in the Finder box with the Dropbox icon. When I wanted to use my account (the other one), I would just log in on the Safari browser.
But at Christmas I got a Mac Book Air, with the purpose of being able to do my own work on it, and wanted to have my account downloaded onto it. Which I did. So far, so good. However, because everything is synched via iCloud, etc between the Air and our iMac, this resulted, in the end, with now having two Dropbox accounts showing up on the iMac Finder, one in the menu bar at the top with the Dropbox icon, and two in the Finder window, one with the Dropbox icon and one just a folder with the name Dropbox. They are both linked to the same account. On my Air I just have the one Dropbox account in the menu bar AND in the Finder window, linked to my account.
I obviously did something wrong along the way. I'm fine with only having one account on my Air (my account) and accessing the other shared account via the web. But on the iMac, I would like to have both accounts showing up in the Finder window, one linked to the shared account and one to my account. That way, when my husband uses the iMac he can access the shared account easily without having to go on the web (which involves passwords and drives him nuts. lol).
How do I go about this?
Thanks for any help you can give. I hope I have explained this clearly.
Thanks for the answer, but since dropbox only allows people to "approve" of their answers, rather than downvote them, I'll leave this here as a downvote. Not only should we be able to have as many accounts as possible, but for people like me who are contractors, the synching of business account and personal is completely ridiculous. I shouldn't have to attach my person and make the make sync the business account. There can't be that much of an bizdev concern to motivate keeping that from users and it certainly can't be a technical hurdle. Would really appreciate this being a priority to add 👎
