If you are the owner of the shared folder, then you can easily move shared folder from work Dropbox to Personal Dropbox account. You can move folder, if you have connected your personal and work Dropbox accounts and have signed in to both of them on your computer. Before moving shared folder, to other Dropbox account, you should always check with both your admin and the folder owner to see if thay have set any restrictions.

Following are the steps to Move Shared Folder from Work Dropbox to Personal Dropbox:

  1. Connect your Personal Dropbox and work Dropbox accounts.
  2. Sign in to your both Personal and work Dropbox accounts.
  3. Browse the shared folder which you want to move.
  4. Right-click on the shared folder on your computer.
  5. Select "Shared Folder Settings..." option.
  6. Click "Change" located at the top of the options window.
  7. Look at the setting for "Who can be invited?". If you see the setting "Anyone", then you can move the shared folder to your personal Dropbox without a problem.
  8. If the setting shows Only members of the team, moving the folder to your personal Dropbox will break your membership in the folder, and you'll have only a non-shared copy of it.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
