re-linking previously linked mac

re-linking previously linked mac

I reinstalled OS on my mac, and when Installed a fresh copy of dropbox, I was prompted with message, that my account only allows for 3 devices to be linked. I have like 8 device linked from the beginning, and I want to figure out how to re-link the same computer to the existing link, as I dont want to remove 5 devices just to get this one working again. It is still linked in the dropbox settings, but it seems that the new Mac OS installation is mistakinly recognised as new computer, which is not.... what can I do to relink this ?

You won't be able to do that. To Dropbox it IS a new device.

 

You'll either need to remove enough devices to get back to just two devices, allowing to you re-link this computer as the third, or you'll need to upgrade to Plus for a month, add the new device, and then downgrade your account again.
