Can anyone help?! How do you delete individual entries that show up on your Recent box in the Home page? If you go into delete, it deletes the file even from your folder! HELP! tx

Hi @paolagratsos, welcome to the Dropbox Community!

You're right, if you select to delete a file from your Recents list in your Home page online, the file will be deleted. 

Don't worry though, if you accidentally remove a file, you can recover it as soon as possible by following these steps

Although there's no option to remove a file listed in your Recents without deleting it, you can Hide the whole list

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi,

 

How can i delete old file entries which are no more required to me, these are very old files (3 years back).

Thanks for joining the discussion here @Ank8519.

 

The only way to do this would be the one described by @Lusil; have you given that option a go yet?
