Joined a workteam but what happened to my private dropbox??

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I had my own personal dropbox and needed to upload some videos to one of my employers team account.  They invited me to the team - I accepted and now my dropbox has their name and I'm not sure how to separate them.  Is there a way to have a team account and my personal account?


Thanks.

When you joined the team you merged your account into the Business account. Basically, your account no longer exists and now belongs to the business.

 

You need them to convert your account back to an individual account. Make sure they don't simply remove you from the team. Doing so will delete your account and all the files within it. They need to convert it back to an individual account.
