Fastest way to rewind my Dropbox folders

Fastest way to rewind my Dropbox folders

New member | Level 2


By ecident my dropbox folder were deleted.

Some how the root folder was deleted, and now I'm trying to recover it. 

I tried to run Rewind on the root folder and got a message:

"There was an internal Dropbox error, but we can still help you use Rewind. Contact support", unfortunatly the support is nt availablr today on Sunday.

When I'm trying to run rewind on each folder seperatly, I can't find the point to rewind since I need to scroll down to the file over all the deleted and there are many files..

I tried also to seach all the deleted files but it ask me to mark all check boxes in order to restore and as I said it's many files and folders.

What's the fastest way to restore it?

If you need it now I'm afraid its the manual tick box as you've found, or, if you can wait via Support
