Transfer Files Between Multiple Dropbox Accounts Using your iPad / iPhone

The Dropbox app only allows you to transfer documents from a Dropbox Business Account to a personal account. FileBrowser Professional's cloud to cloud management is much more powerful solution. Simply add as many Dropbox Business or Personal accounts as you like and copy documents freely between them.

How to Setup Multiple Dropbox Accounts and transfer Files Between them on iOS

Follow our simple guide to setup multiple Dropbox accounts on your iPad / iPhone and transfer files between them:

Link your Dropbox Accounts

Link one or more Dropbox accounts to FileBrowser Professional on your iPad or iPhone. Tap "Add Location" from the FileBrowser Professional home screen and add a Dropbox location and name it then tap "Save".

Now tap the new Dropbox location on your FileBrowser Professional home screen to link the account.

If you have the Dropbox app installed on your device, this will open and ask to grant FileBrowser Professional permission. Otherwise the Dropbox website will open, where you can login and grant permission.

Repeat these steps to add as many Dropbox accounts as you need.

Select and Copy your Dropbox Files

Connect to your Dropbox account and browse to a folder.
Simply tap “Select” in the top right corner and check the files of folders you want, then tap “Copy” or “Move”.

Paste your Dropbox Files into another Dropbox Account

Browse to your other Dropbox account and navigate to the folder you want to copy the documents to.

Simply tap “Paste X files here” in the top right corner.

Optionally: if you have the two locations open in separate tabs or windows, you can just drag and drop the files between tabs.
