Will I lose any of my files if my account ever downgrades?

Explorer | Level 3

Hello, if you turn a basic account to a pro and for any reason decide to cancel that contract within the allow timeframe (and maybe get refunded, depending on your location apparently), account will be reverted to basic. In that case, files will remain there even tho you'll be unable to sync. That could be nice if you don't totally abandon Dropbox. Can you confirm? I'm not sure who respond here but i'm sure some people add that happen to them slightly smiling face

Re: If cancelling pro plan, will uploaded file remains?

If you downgrade at any point in time and your storage goes over your limit, your files won’t get deleted, but they won’t sync between connected devices and you won’t be able to add new files. You can find more info on this in this Help Center article.
Hope this helps! grinning face with smiling eyes
