Recover photos from a deleted account.

Could someone tell me what happens to photos stored in Dropbox when an account is permanently deleted? A few years ago I deleted a photo account and I'm worried that someone might get them somehow. Thank you.

Once an account has been deleted, all files within the account are deleted as well. Also, once an account is deleted, the files within it cannot be recovered. For more information, refer to the Retention paragraph under How in the Dropbox Privacy Policy.
