Dropbox files & folders

A couple of weeks ago I realised that dropbox had deleted my folders and the files within them.
I tried to go back in time and restore what had been lost but it didnt work.
Its not the end of the world because I have them saved elsewhere too, but I was wondering whether you have any idea of what might have happened.
Thanks in advance,
Hi @tillyharris, thanks for joining the Community!
I'm glad to hear you were able to locate a copy of your files. Generally, deletions can happen for various reasons.
I've listed many possibilities in this thread which could apply in your case, though it can vary depending on the situation.
