Dropbox overwhelmed my computer

Dropbox overwhelmed my computer

New member | Level 2

Accidentally uploaded some deleted folders back into Dropbox and it overwhelmed my computer since I didn't have enough room and that locked it up completely. I was able to get a hold of job box and they will be returning my Dropbox to its former self 10 minutes before this all happened. Will this automatically sync into my computer after they roll it back and will my computer open up?

Re: Dropbox overwhelmed my computer


Hi @Rebecca H.10, thanks for reaching out to us. 


It sounds like you're following the right steps so far, but I can't pin-point exactly how the computer itself with behave. 


You can have a look at this article in the meantime to see if any of the listed suggestions help in this matter. 


In any case, let me know how it goes. 


Thanks again!
