Hi, I am trying to get the the id's of deleted files but I dont see file Id present in DeletedMetadata. Is their any way to get the deleted file Id so that I can delete the file from my local cache too?

The Dropbox API doesn't return the file/folder ID for DeletedMetadata, but I'll pass this along as a feature request.

That being the case, if you need to the ID for the deleted file, you'll need to record and retrieve it based on the file you last saw at that path, before the deletion. (Or, just use the DeletedMetadata path to delete whatever you had at that path.)

Hi,
Is there any news regarding this? Is it on a roadmap to be added? If it is, any ideas when?

Thanks

I don't have any news on this unfortunately, nor am I aware of any current plans to implement it. I'll add your vote to the request.

This has been an issue in V2 since at least 2016, I'll add my voice to needing it addressed like so many others.

Not having it resolved creates unsolvable problems with dropbox apps such as our own (ie name clash 1:N, one to many,  relationship issues)
