My old pictures are missing

My old pictures are missing

New member | Level 2

Back in - 2005-2007 before the "cloud" really got big (at least for me), I stored my newborn son's pictures on a little flash drive, then transferred them to dropbox around 2007. But I'm in my dropbox account and can only see pictures from the last 5 years. What would have happened to all my old pictures? Back then I stopped printing them and we had a flood that ruined all my little flash cards. My son is graduating this year and I'm trying to find his "first" pictures.

Hi @seteva, thank you for messaging the Community.


Can you clarify, if you are not able to see the pictures on the photos tab, or also in your account's home page?


Do you see any signs of the files in your events page?


This is the place where all the actions taken in your account are logged, including deletions.


Let me know if you find anything!
