Files from an expired account

Files from an expired account

New member | Level 2

I let my former dropbox account expire without thinking of the consequences. Is there a way to determine if my files were deleted from the server? I have a feeling they were since I re-signed back up with the same email address, but I want to make sure there isn't a way to attempt to retrieve the lost files (from 2016) before I completely strike them up as a loss.

No, I'm afraid that won't be possible. If it had JUST been deleted there might have been a chance, but even more than a month ago is too long. The account and all file within it would already be deleted.
