Merge Two Personal Accounts

Merge Two Personal Accounts

I have two personal accounts.  Account A has much more storage than Account B, however, Account B is linked to my preferred email address.  Account A is linked to an email address that is provided by my ISP which I am soon going to deactivate.  How can I move my files from Account B to Acount A AND switch email addreses from Account A to Account B and B to A?

Create a shared folder between the two accounts. Move the files from B into the folder, then go to A and move the files out of the shared folder to another location in A's account. This will remove the files from B. Once you have all of the files in B moved to A, you can delete account B which will free up that email address so you can use it on account A.
