Today i installed the dropboxapp on my windows pc.
Suddenly my traffic went through the sky and i realized that dropbox decided to upload my whole dektop into the cloud (250gb) so i stopped the sinc and deleted the folder in my user/dektop/dropbox then i was asked if i wanted to delet everything.. i thought dropbox is speaking of those file which were already uploaded into dropbox so i said YES... well after that my whole dektop.. all documents /important date /files were GONE.. not in the bin.. GONE.. i already tried a data recovery programm but it couldn find any recentlxy deleted files.. is there ANY way to get the Data on my pc back? Why in Hell does the app even have the rights to delete frpm my pc?
I can't believe what iam reading here.. Yeah there WAS an Folder of my desktop/dropbox wich i deleted in order to stop the sync.. the app never told me or warned me that it decided to MOVE content from My pc into a new folder.. what the hell guys?
Even if i wanted to upload my stuff to dropbox noone would want dropbox to MOVE your stuf into another path. just COPY it for obviously reasons.. i deleted a folder created by dropbox and so i deleted MY STUFF on the pc?
You can't image how furious iam about The Dropboxapp right now -.-
