Account transfer overview

As the admin of a Dropbox for Business account, you can easily transfer a deleted member's Dropbox files to another team member. You can use account transfer either immediately before or after the user's account has been deleted. Account transfer helps to keep your company's data safe and minimize interruptions to your team's workflow.

All of the folders and files in the former member's work Dropbox will go to the recipient you've chosen. Dropbox will also look to preserve sharing relationships. For example, if the member owned a shared folder, Dropbox will transfer ownership of the folder to the recipient. Learn more below.
