Drop Box is Great until you try to merge it with a Business account

I have been using drop box for years. Recently when I started with a new company, they had a shared business dropbox they wanted me to add to my computer. When I went through the process it asked if I wanted to keep my own DB or merge it. It didn't say much else, but it was confusing. I had 20+GB on my personal free account which was lost when I merged. I liked drop box a lot up until this point. UI is confusing on merging and should be addressed.

What do you like best?

Easy to use. Sync is pretty seamless. Better then Google Drive still.

What do you dislike?

UI on merging with a business account is horrible. Don't know if I can get my account back.
