Merge personal plus account into company business account

I would like to merge automatically, meaning moving all my files automatically, my personal plus account registered with a personal email, into my new company business account registered with my company email. How do I do this?

First, change the email address on your personal Dropbox to your business email address. If you're invited to a team on your company email, you wouldn't be able to join it with your personal email.

Once you've changed the email address on your personal account, ask the team admin for the Business account to invite you to the team at your company email. When you accept the invite and join the team, your account will be merged into the Business team and will belong to the company. Your personal account will no longer exist.

This is not possible anymore, they already had invited me and I already accepted. So if now I try to change my email it says that it is already taken.

Then what you want to do (in the way you want to do it) won't be possible.

Just share a folder between you Buisness and Personal accounts and move everything in your Personal account into the shared folder.
