Old files not retrieved

New member | Level 2

If I upgrade, will I be able to retrieve my old deleted files?

I loved dropbox and even promoted it amongst my peers and students.

But if I have lost all my files then it will be a very sad goodbye.

I hope google drive does not go the Dropbox route.

Re: Old files not retrieved

Hi @AO22, welcome to the Dropbox Community! 

Keep in mind that the file version history each plan has isn't retroactive. 

Therefore, even if you upgrade, you won't be able to restore your content. Sorry for this

If you need anything else, we're always a post away!
