Are my deleted files still available in Dropbox online?

Hi,

A few months ago, I logged in to my dropbox account, and for maybe 1-2 seconds as the screen was updating, I seen a lot of my old deleted dropbox files flash up in my account.  Then, when the screen refreshed, those deleted files were not visible.  So, my question is, are my deleted files still saved somewhere in the dropbox cloud and available in cyberspace?

Hi @reedfujimotocpa, thanks for posting!

 

When your files are deleted in Dropbox, they will remain in your "Deleted files" page for your version history window.

 

However, if they were deleted outside of your version history window then the files won't be recoverable I'm afraid.

 

I hope this helps clarify the matter!
