Deleted files re-appear

Deleted files re-appear

New member | Level 2

I delete some files and folders from my Dropbox (I am the one and only owner), and then delete them permanently. Then after some minutes they re-appear (User has added XX files).

I tried to disconnect all my account and delete them directly from browser.

But then, they re-appear again.

How can I solve this problem?

Re: Deleted files re-appear

Hi @silvias, thanks for contacting us!

When you disconnected all your devices, and then deleted the files from the site, did they immediately re-appear?

When you check the events page, does it show which device added the files back to your account?

This will help me to assist further!
