I downloaded Dropbox application today to get some shared work files. I did the installation as recommended by dropbox, only by clicking "yes" or "continue" through the process. Dropbox tried to synch all my documents and folders. It did stop because of the lack of space.
I tried to select that I only wanted to have the work shared files on my PC documents and that I did not want Dropbox to synch and download all my files. It didn't need this feature. As it did not work, I deleted Dropbox application.
BUT, it deleted all my documents and files. For example, my PhD thesis had been deleted.... I can't retrieve my files and documents and I begin to stress about that.
I found those on the deleted files of my online dropbox account but I'll have to pay to retrieve them (which is not acceptable).
