Unlinked team account but folder still called Dropbox (Personal)

Unlinked team account but folder still called Dropbox (Personal)

My account was linked to my work's team account but they recently stopped using Dropbox and we were all unlinked.

 

My folder is still called Dropbox (Personal).

 

How can I revert it back to just Dropbox?

Hey @doowruc; welcome to our Community!

Can you please try un-linking and re-linking your account through the app's preferences?

If that didn't help, you can also try an advanced reinstall

Keep me posted with any updates!

Thanks @Walter 

 

I ended up with the advanced reinstall but had to go an extra step -

 

after uninstalling, in my user folder there was still the Dropbox (Personal) & Dropbox (My Work) folders, plus a shortcut (possibly a symlink?) called Dropbox pointing at the personal folder. 

 

I deleted the shortcut & the work folder, renamed the personal folder to just Dropbox, then reinstalled

 

All good now!
