Can I have multiple Dropbox account syncing to my computer?

Is it possible to establish two seperate dropbox accounts and have access to both in my Finder menu on my MAC??

Re: Multiple dropbox accounts

Hey there @jamesjames,
To have 2 separate Dropbox account syncing to your desktop, they would need to be a personal (Dropbox Basic, Plus or Professional) and a Dropbox Business account. To enable this, you must connect the two accounts. They will remain as separate accounts but this will allow you easier access to both via the web (no need to sign out/in to switch) and have both sync to your desktop.
If both of your Dropbox accounts are personal ones or both business, then I’m afraid you wouldn’t be able to have both syncing to your desktop. 
Hope this helps to clarify the matter - Thanks!
