Can't Leave Team

Can't Leave Team

New member | Level 2



I misclicked on an old team invite to a dead business team / group that I was never an admin of, and now it's completely junked my email's account.


How can I either delete this account and reuse the email or leave the team without being an admin? Really need to be able to use dropbox, and since this dead team / dead admin's account no longer pays, I literally can't upload anything to even my own files. I'm essentially screwed at the moment, and am literally just trying to use dropbox as a personal account. Please fix my account team, thanks in advance!

Re: Can't Leave Team


Hi @XanderClements, thanks for posting on the Community!


I'm sorry to hear about this situation. If you're not able to upload file to the account, it's possible that the team is in a locked state.


Could you try the steps in the above article to disband the team to convert that account back to a personal account?


Let me know how it goes!
