Removing myself (and my files) from a business account I accidentally was added to

Removing myself (and my files) from a business account I accidentally was added to

I recently bought a bigger storage level on here, then a client added me to her dropbox folders but since she has a business account it made me join her account so she's the admin of all my folders, which made Dropbox reimburse me since they said I was on her account now. I don't want to be on her account, how do I separate my account from her business account?

You need to get the Business Admin to remove you from the Business team - note remove not delete! If she deletes it your account is deleted.

RE: How to remove personal files from Business account

Hi there,

 

Mistakenly I migrated my personal folder in someone's business dropbox account. I am the only one having access to that folder but I want to remove it. After I remove it the file moved to deleted files. Now I want to remove it permanently but I don't have permission. How can I solve this

It sounds like the admin for your team has disable the ability to permanently delete files. You'll either need to ask the team admin to enable this setting, or ask them to do it for you.
