I was trying to remove some space on my dropbox account to share files and I removed the Mac backup folder. After this was done, my computer reset and deleted all the files that were on my computer. How can I restore these files?
Dropbox phone customer support is nonexistent and I have not found any answers to how I can restore my files without upgrading to a new account and paying $200. All I want is to get the files I had on my computer before, please help!!
If you find them online as deleted, you can restore them by following these steps.
Let me know how it goes, cheers!
The files are nowhere to be found. I received this notification if I wanted to try backing up my desktop and my Mac Files on Dropbox, when I pressed "yes" the system started transfering files and it soon gave me a message that there was no space on Dropbox for all my files, so I cancelled the backup, now the files are not in my Computer and are not in Dropbox either. They are not in deleted items nor in my "trash".
I am responding to this thred because I have no where else to turn. I tried the dropbox community and that has proven to be no help. This issue seems to be something that normal troubleshooting can't resolve. I understand that the cloud system Dropbox is trying is still in beta and there are issues that need to be resolved. I was connected to customer service but they have stopped responding and it has gotten me absolutley no where. I am aware that you do not have a customer support line, but there has to be someone I can talk to! If dropbox was able to delete all the files from my computer that must have the ability to restore them. So please get me in touch with someone who can actually help here! Please.
Were you able to get any help on this issue? I am stuck in a loop with customer service, but wanted to reach out to see if you were able to get any closer to resolving this problem.
If I hear anything, i'll be sure to let you know.
Nothing from Dropbox, I don´t even know how to contact them. I lost all my files that were on my Desktop. Some files are really important and I don´t have any way of recuperating them.
Yeah, same here. I contacted customer support but am now just waiting for someone to reply. They dont have a phone number so I am really just sitting here waiting. I also have been stuck because some of the files I lost were for work and now I can't complete them. I will let you know if they reach back out to me...
Hey there peeps!
@Rponce0811, since you mentioned that you're not able to find them after enabling the backup, can you please try force quitting the Finder and relaunching it to see if that helps?
If you're not sure on how to do this then please check out these steps.
Otherwise, can you check in the Dropbox folder to see if the files are within the "My Mac" folder?
@abab09, can you let me know the ticket number (eg. #1234567) you received when you contacted our Support team?
