Restoring a specific file

Restoring a specific file

New member | Level 2

Hi, I have deleted a bunch of unnecessary stuff on my Dropbox, and reorganise it. Apparently one of them was erroneously deleted and I cannot look for the file in the "deleted file" section in the Dropbox Web. I am not going to click "restore all" and do everything again, so any tips for finding and recovering that particular file? Thanks.

Hi @Sweettooth, thanks for posting on our Community and happy Friday!


Apart from the deleted files page, you should be able to restore through the events page.


Can you take a look and let me know if you were able to find and restore the mentioned file?
