File history on Dropbox is tied to the file path, so file version history won't follow files across moves/renames like this. The version history at the original path isn't lost though, so you can continue to query on the original path to get the old history. You can use the file's ID to track it across moves/renames though.
I have tried same, but I lost version list in my Dropbox account. Now i am not able to seen version history for moved files in Dropbox account. how I can version history in my account.
Hi Avnish, I'm not sure I understand your question. This thread was about file history when using the Dropbox API. Are you also working on an integration with the Dropbox API? If so, please share some more information, e.g., steps to reproduce the issue, sample code, etc.
I am integrating API V2 in my application. I want to know, if any user rename any file using my application, user go to his Dropbox account and wants to check any older version for that file then how he will find the version history for that file.
They can use the button to "Show deleted files" on the Dropbox web site, which will show the file at the old path. They can then get the file history from there.
