Hi,

SyncBackPro supports backing-up files to multiple cloud accounts. However, if the first cloud profile is using a linked account, then you may need to stop using the linked account when creating a new Dropbox/OneDrive profile:

1. Create a new OneDrive/Dropbox profile and go to Modify > Expert > Cloud settings page.

2. Click on 'Do not use my account' button to stop using the linked account

3. Then click on the Authorize button

4. When asked if you would like to re-authorize with the same account click on 'No' button. Follow the on-screen prompts to allow authorized access and copy/paste the authorization code supplied from the site into the SyncBackPro dialog window (using the new cloud credentials).

5. SyncBack may prompt to create Shared Setting to store your credentials. If you wish you can create a new Shared Setting, if not you can click on No button to skip that step.

Thank you.

I am unable to find the checkbox on the Cloud tab for "Do not use my account". Has this feature been removed?

I want to use my wife's OneDrive account as well as my own and I see no way to do it.

Thanks,
John Strong

Hi John, it will only appear if you are using a linked account with that profile, otherwise it will be 'Use my account' (if a linked account can be used). As you want to use different accounts you don't need to do anything except *not* clicking 'Use my account' (which would then use a linked account, which is not what you want to do).
