Can I merge Dropbox accounts?

If you’re a Dropbox Basic, Plus, or Professional user, you can’t automatically combine Dropbox accounts. If you’d like to merge two Dropbox accounts, the easiest way is to choose one account, and share all the files and folders to that account from the other.

If you’re a Dropbox Business member, you can merge two teams.

Merge by sharing files

First, you can share all files and folders with the other account.

Sharing your files, however, does not share files that were shared with you—that you have access to but don’t own. To share these, you have to add them to your account first.

To add these files to your own account and then share them:

  1. Sign in to
  2. Click Files.
  3. Click Sharing to see a list of files and folders that have been shared with you.
  4. Click Add next to each file or folder. They’ll be added to your files.
  5. Click My Files.
  6. Find the files and folders you just added and share them with the other account.

After you’ve shared all files and folders, you can delete them from the original account or delete the whole account.
