All Files Suddenly Missing

All Files Suddenly Missing

New member | Level 2

I just logged into my Dropbox and found all of the files that I had saved there are now missing. It’s been a little while since I logged in (about 4 months), but nothing is in the deleted files area either. Not sure if I can get these files back, but my Dropbox was nearly at capacity and some of the documents were important.

Thank you.

Hi there @Pvaleiras15; welcome to our Community and sorry to hear about your missing files


Can you please take a look at your events page and let me know if you can find anything there?


This is the place where all uploads, edits and deletions are normally logged so it should give you a hint. 


Let me know how you get on, Peter.
