File Restoration not working

File Restoration not working

New member | Level 2

For some reasons, dropbox fails to restore deleted files.

As you can see in the .gif below, it says it worked out and restored deleted files, but upon refreshing and checking the folder they're still deleted.

Yes. I think it was a temporary issue.

Hi @ipsumdevelopments; thanks for joining the discussion here and sorry to hear you're having issues with our Rewind feature. 

 

Can you please let me know if you get any different results from another browser or an incognito window? 

 

If you do, could you try restoring the deleted files from your events page
