Delete a member from a Dropbox Business team
Dropbox Business admins can delete or suspend a team member's work account. They can then reassign the license and invite another person to the team.
A suspended team member instantly loses access to their Dropbox Business team account, and all of its files and folders. The account will remain suspended until an admin chooses to remove the suspension.
- Note: The ability to suspend users is limited to team admins and user management admins

As a team admin can I delete my own account?
As the admin of a Dropbox Business team you cannot remove your own account from the team. Instead, you'll need to make another member of your team an admin, and then have the new admin remove your account.
Can team members delete accounts?
A Dropbox Business team member does not have the option to delete an account. If you are a Dropbox Business team member and you would like to delete your account, you'll need to contact your Dropbox Business team administrator.
What happens when I delete a team member's account?
When you delete a team member's account, it becomes inaccessible, and shared links created by the account are disabled. Dropbox also stops syncing files to the team member's computers and mobile devices. Files that have already been synced to the team member's Dropbox folder can be removed from any device with an active internet connection using remote wipe.
- Note: The files in a deleted Dropbox Business user account will not be permanently deleted unless the team admin takes further action.
In the process of deleting a member's account, you can also use account transfer. This option allows you to move all of the files and folders in the team member's work Dropbox to another person on the team. All of the files and folders that are in the former member's work Dropbox at the time you initiate the transfer will go to the recipient's Dropbox. Additionally, Dropbox will look to preserve any file sharing relationships, so any shared folders or folder ownership will also be transferred.
