You can use listFolderBuilder to get a ListFolderBuilder, on which you can call .withIncludeDeleted(true) to tell the API to return deleted entries. Then, when you call .start() the returned ListFolderResult will include deleted entries.

 

Make sure you still check ListFolderResult.getHasMore() and call back to listFolderContinue if necessary, per the listFolderBuilder documentation.

Hi,

 

I am using this code for getting Files and Folders

In place of cursor i am passing empty string

String cursor ="";

 

List<Metadata> metadataList = DropboxClientFactory.getInstance().getClient().files().listFolder(cursor).getEntries();

1. You suggested to use ListFolderBuild to get delete entries.

2. This is the code I am using.

Builder builder = new Builder("");
ListFolderBuilder folderBuilder = new ListFolderBuilder(DropboxClientFactory.getInstance().getClient(), builder).withIncludeDeleted(true);

3. But I struck with package which we need to use for  Builder (In Dropbox they are using (com.dropbox.core.v2.files.ListFolderArg). But this is not public class to use it.

 

Please suggest.

 

Thanks.

You don't need to access Builder. You can call listFolderBuilder directly on your client like this, just like in your first listFolder example:

 

client.files().listFolderBuilder("").withIncludeDeleted(true).start().getEntries();
