Dropbox/apps/appfolder accidentally deleted

Explorer | Level 4

Hi all,

i accidentally deleted my appfolder that was generated automatically while creating the app. 

When I try to recreate the folder it seems that it is not linked to the app and it is not working anymore.

 

i am accessing the app through a generated token from a Windows service that to upload my file. Now the app is not working after deleting the folder in restore it again.

 

anyhelp 

thanks

If you delete an app's app folder, that will effectively unlink the app, so further API calls will fail.

If you want to use the app again, you'll need to link the app to your account again. (Just restoring the folder won't do this.) To relink the app, you can either process the OAuth app authorization flow, or generate a new token from the App Console.
