Deleted files from the computer

I have uploaded the files to the dropbox. An error occurred while uploading. The documents have been deleted from my computer. Now they are neither in the cloud nor on the computer. What to do? Help me, please

Re: Deleted files from the computer


Hi @Deef_13, thanks for posting on the Community!


I'm sorry to hear about these missing files. If the files were successfully uploaded, could you try checking this page to see if they're recoverable from the site.


If the missing files weren’t syncing to your account, then it wouldn’t be possible to recover them from the site. 


However, it might be possible to recover the files from the local machine from the recycle bin, or using a third party app or service to do so.


Let me know how it goes!
