I have my own "Personal" Paid Business Dropbox account that I have synced to all my devices. This is a Personal Dropbox account but I pay the annual fee for a Business account as I enjoy the additional features and storage space.
I am currently doing some work for a client and need to have their company Business Dropbox account synced to my computer, I do not want to un-sync my paid Business Dropbox account.
I tried to use the "Connect My Personal Dropbox Account" feature, however, it tells me I can only connect if I have a personal Dropbox account.
So, what I am assuming is because I have decided as a personal user to pay for a Business account, I am now not able to access a feature that I need to be able to work effectively with my client!?
Surely there is a way I can connect to my Personal Dropbox account, despite it technically being a Business account?
Hi, I have this configured - A personal business account - work account; Shows as the e-mail under the name of my company. Then for the client I configured personal DropBox to that e-mail address. The client is under the personal DropBox. Open your admin monitor and set Business and Personal e-mails(two tabs in monitor)
I'll jump in and put my vote behind such a feature. I don't think it's uncommon for a lot of freelancers to work with several companies at the same time, and Dropbox is a prolific tool.
It's a massive hassle to have to unsync accounts, or have to go through safari, everytime I move from one project to another just because they are in seperate business accounts.
Personally I'd like to have one personal and several work accounts all linked together and synced to my computer, but currently I can only have one of each.
I hope this can be bumped to priority 🙂
I'm using a VA who works for more than company with business dropbox and has her own personal dropbox. It's definitely a massive shame that she cannot set this up in a simple fashion without me worrying about my data. Surely this has to be a priority for dropbox.

I'm part of a dropbox business account using email-A. I'm also part of dropbox business account using email-B. I see the folders associated with email-A in finder. However the email-B folders/files I'm only able to access via the web. How do I get the folders/files associated with email-B into finder? Within the dropbox associated with email-A there are multiple shared folders with a numerous clients. How do I get finder access to it all?
