You can only have one personal account and one Business account syncing to your computer.

A have a Plus Personal account and need to Sync two different Business accounts to my Mac computer. How can I do it without merging accounts? Each business account is related to a separate business and does not have nothing to do each other.

 

One of them works with cinema production and I must sync video footages to an external HDD which has enough space to store almost 3TB of footages.

 

My internal SSD has only 1TB and is already syncing with my personal and the other business accounts.

Hi @marcos_hirano, generally, it won't be possible to have more than two accounts syncing on the same machine, by pairing a personal and work account.

If you need to have another set of work and personal accounts, technically, you could create a new computer profile, install the Dropbox app there, and have the two accounts linked there.

However, you'd need to log into that computer profile for the files to sync each time, and vice versa for the original set of accounts.

If you need any more details, feel free to message back!

In this day and age one would think this would be possible without such a hassle.  I will need to look for other alternatives.
