loading dropbox business on my Mac

Level 3

I have both a personal and business dropbox account.  My personal dropbox is on my laptop, but I cannot figure out how to laod the business account.  I have access to our server on my laptop and need to be able to work with both the server and work/business dropbox from my Mac.  How do I add the dropbox business folder, in addition to my personal dropbox folder, on my Mac?

 

Thank,

Kev

Hey Kev (@Kev4), let me ask you a couple questions that will help me determine the best next steps for you; thanks for getting in touch on the Dropbox Community on this matter!
 
As you mentioned that you've already loaded your personal account to your Mac, can you let me know whether you’ve linked your accounts online by any chance? This should have prompted you to sync both accounts locally on your Mac. If you had skipped that at the time, you can easily start anew following the steps outlined below: 
 
Spoiler
  1. (If your app isn't up-to-date, download and install the latest version of the desktop app.) Click the Dropbox icon in your menu bar.
  1. Click the gear icon and select Preferences... from the menu.
  1. Select the Account 👥 tab.
  1. If you already signed in to your work account, select the Personal tab. Or, if you already signed in to your personal account, select the tab with your organization's name.
  1. Click the Link button.
  1. Enter the password for your second account.
Please do let me know how you get on with these steps & I’ll make sure to get back in touch with you asap. Have a wonderful rest of you day until we talk again!

Thank you very much, but Jane helped me Friday and solved the problem. I apologize to the forum for not letting folks know. And, Jane, I did the computer savvy thug and responded to your email, rather than reply in the forum to thank you. Sunday night I received the notice that my email was undeliverable. Anyway, thank you, Jane, for your quick and helpful response to my delima.

Based on your description, you may have replied back to our automatic email (& that’s why this has returned you the un-deliverable message) however I appreciate it that you took the extra step to update the thread today. Now that you know where you can find us, please don’t hesitate to get back in touch again in case you have more questions or you’d like to share your thoughts. Thanks for choosing Dropbox & take care until we talk again! slightly smiling face
