How to sync two personal Dropbox accounts easily and quickly? In addition to using the manual way: Download and Upload, this article will show you a best way to sync files between Dropbox accounts via a free cloud to cloud sync service, MultCloud.
Is It Possible to Sync Two Dropbox Accounts?
Dropbox is one of the most popular online cloud storage services. Users could log in through website, or download free apps to access Dropbox from computer, phone or tablet. However, the free storage of Dropbox is very small (only 2GB), so many users create two or more personal accounts to get more free space or to storage different files. And so there is a question on how to connect two or more personal Dropbox accounts and manage files between them easily and quickly.
As we all know, only Dropbox Business users will be able to have multiple Dropbox accounts synced to a single device. If you are a free user with two basic accounts, you can only switch these two accounts by signing out and signing in through the Dropbox website each time. Then what would you do if you need sync two free basic Dropbox accounts?
Common Way: Download and Upload
The common way is manually synchronizing files of two Dropbox accounts. That means it need to download all files from one account (account A) to the local computer first, then log out account A and log in another account (account B), at last upload all the files from the local PC to account B.
If the amount of data is not particularly large, this method can solve the problem. But if your data is very large, then using this method will be very time-consuming.
