Folks, I have had a personal Dropbox+ account for several years. Someone in my family used my preferred email gmail addy, the same one on my personal account, to join me to the family account. Without asking me, Dropbox gave me a refund and cancelled my personal account when they added me to the family plan. That's NOT what I want! I want to keep my personal account separate from the family account (I'm a teacher and writer and I want to pay for my own account and keep my files separate in case the administrator of the Family Room stops paying). Now that all of my files are in the family account, how do I separate them easily? The only thing I can think of is to:
~ Have the Family Room administrator drop my preferred gmail address from the family plan, then set up a "new" Dropbox account using that email addy. Right now all of my many folders, including the shared "Family Room" folder, are in my Dropbox folder on my computer. Would I have to drag and drop all of my files into my "new" Dropbox+ account?
~ The Family Room admin could add me back in later by using my secondary gmail account. Would these two accounts (personal and family) be linked?
~ I use a Mac desktop using Ventura and a PC laptop using Windows 11 synced through Dropbox.
Any ideas? It sucks that I can't ask Dropbox directly 😉
