I received this email from Dropbox support for deleted thousands of files that I don't recognize. They are .DLL files. What does that mean?

Hi Ahmed,

You recently deleted 1369 files from your Dropbox account. If you want these files back, you can still restore them until 19/5/2021. After that, they’ll be permanently deleted.

These are the files you deleted:

DelDrv.exe and 1,368 files from the shared folder XXXXX
19/4/2021 12:58 PM using Windows 10 2009 See deleted files

And 0 more files

Re: Deleted files

Hi @Koka123, thanks for messaging the Community!

It seems like this is related to a specific program stored in your Dropbox folder, since .exe and .dll files are used in Windows programs.

Most likely you've recently uninstalled a program or deleted it from the Dropbox folder.

If you need to recover the files, you can do so from here.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know!
