How to use multiple accounts on a single PC?
It’s a three step process that involves minimal knowledge on computers . First you will have to create users in your Windows platform by going to your Control Panel -> User accounts -> Manage accounts . There you will create several users (you will create 3 users if you want to have 4 instances of Dropbox running on your preffered user) . But you will have to also create multiple e-mails so you can have as many accounts on Dropbox as on your PC .
As you probably already know , each account enables you to use 2 Gb for free , so make as many accounts as you need !
Second you will have to log in with those different users and for each account download and install as i’ll show you in the video below .
Third and the last step , involves modifying the target of the main .exe file for each Dropbox account .

Dropbox is a file hosting service operated by Dropbox, Inc., that offers cloud storage, file synchronization, and client software. Dropbox allows users to create a special folder on each of their computers, which Dropbox then synchronizes so that it appears to be the same folder (with the same contents) regardless of which computer is used to view it. Files placed in this folder also are accessible through a website and mobile phone applications.
