Copy files from business dropbox to personal dropbox

Level 2

I have a lot of files (> 300GB) in the dropbox account associated with my university email address (university provides free unlimited dropbox). I need to transfer all those files to my personal dropbox as I will be graduating soon and univ account will close. What is the easiest way to do that ?

Hey there @amohant4 - sorry for the tardy response; are you still having issues with this?

If you'd like to transfer your files from one Dropbox account to another, the easiest way is to share a folder between your accounts. Add the files you'd like to transfer to this folder and they will automatically sync with your other account.

We've outlined the specific steps for you here:
