Hello. My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Expert:  Isaac Franklin replied 1 year ago.

Can you tell me what problems you are having with drop box in particular?

In order to help you, I need to know what operating system you have on your device. Windows Vista, Windows 7, 8.1, 10, or do you have a Mac?

Windows 8.1I saved some files to Dropbox but when I opened Dropbox they weren't there. I did a search for those files and they are in Dropbox. I fear I may have two user names? Not sure
Expert:  Isaac Franklin replied 1 year ago.

When you go here:

Do you have a name saved? (my email auto-populates there when i sign into mine) You can have more than one login/acct.

Is it the one you usually use? And also, do you remember another email you may have used to log in?

Are you a business owner/account set up?

Only Dropbox Business users will be able have multiple Dropbox accounts synced to a single device. If you don’t have a Dropbox Business account, you can access a second Dropbox account by signing in as another user through the Dropbox website. Or you can share files between multiple accounts by creating shared folders.

Friendly reminder. ONLY accept if you want me to do this for you.

If you would like to have a more hands on support through Secure Remote Assistance, I will send you an offer and I will be able

to log in and perform the fix for you. We offer this as an easier solution for clients. It is 100% guaranteed

money back if we cannot resolve your issue.

If you would like to continue with written instructions, that is absolutely fine as well. Just click the reject when you see the

offer and we will continue immediately in this manner going forward.
