Dropbox stopped syncing as computer on mac os 10.12 is no longer supported

I use a mac - OS 10.12 computer and I had clips backed up in the Dropbpx application that was installed on the computer. After you changed the policy with old mac os, the files were deleted from the memory. It is about over 2000 files that were arranged on the computer according to folders. How do I make them return exactly to their previous place on the computer?

Even if your computer stopped connecting to Dropbox due to it no longer being supported, your files would not have been deleted. Dropbox simply doesn't do that. It would just stop syncing and leave everything where it was.

 

That said, if you're missing files and you're not able to run a supported version of the Dropbox application to sync your files, you would need to sign in to the Dropbox website and download your files manually.

Hi rich,
Does this mean that even if all the files that were in a source folder on the computer and were saved to Dropbox online (of course are no longer on the computer because they are backed up) will automatically return to the same folder that existed before? Because if not that means I'll have to download each file manually and put them back in the same refrigerated folder. This is a considerable number of files and the application is no longer supported on my computer version, so I cannot open the files through the application on the computer, they are only through the Dropbox web
Need more support?
