Re: Desktop App?


Hey there @Waterdoc  - how are you today?

From what I understand, you'd like to connect both your personal and business accounts on your device and access them via the desktop application - right?

To connect your personal and work Dropbox please follow these steps:

  1. Log in to with your Dropbox Business account login.
  2. Click on your name in the top right corner.
  3. Click “Connect your personal Dropbox”.

You'll be asked if you already have a personal Dropbox account. If you do, please sign in to your account or if you don't, you'll be given the option to create a personal account.

Follow the instructions to download the Dropbox desktop application and start using both your personal and work accounts on your computer.

I hope this information helps and please keep me posted on your progress! 

PS: This is available to Dropbox Business users and members of a free team (i.e. they can have both a personal and work Dropbox on any computer, mobile device, and on
