Deleted folder from my c drive.

Deleted folder from my c drive.

New member | Level 2

Hi everyone ,


I deleted drop box folder from my c drive, to open up space.


After a few weeks i got email from drop box saying you removed 7000 files an d it gave me options to restore.


I just realized removing folder from hard drive will be reflected on the cloud , made me super worried.


I restored all the files by clicking the option given to me in my email, it said successfully restored but the process was quick, now i'm not sure if all the files are back or not.

when i click to restore option given to me through email i can see all the deleted files in "event details"


Also i checked my "deleted files" tab in drop box and restored everything that was there.


Please help me sort this out.

Hi @M666, let me see what I can do on my end. 

It sounds like you've restored your content on your end, after following all the appropriate steps .

You can also have a look at the events page if you want to be extra cautious. 

Other than that, do you miss any specific files or folders?

Thanks a bunch!
