Files Gone

Ok so I needed more space on my desktop computer (iMac).

 

I deleted the dropbox folder on my desktop and then I realized like few days later that all of my Dropbox files were gone on ALL of my devices...and even on the website

 

Am I screwed????

Assuming all of your files were syncing to your account, you should be able to recover them from your Deleted Files.

Ok so I adjusted the date filter in the deleted files section, but it only went as far back as August 20, 2022

 

Is there a way to go beyond that?

No, because even with paid accounts (which needed to have been in place at the point of deletion) it is only possibly to restore back 6 months - i.e. to August 2022
