File from Gmail has disappeared

New member | Level 2

Hi everyone, 

im a new dropbox user, i was sent a file via a gmail email and have opened it in my Dropbox (approx 1 yr ago) but now it has disappeared. It was a audio recording file, i listened to it once then i tried to open it about a minth later and it was gone.  I tried again about 6 mths later and it had reappeared the next day it was gone again and now ive checked more than 10 times over the past 4 months and nothing... any help would be greatly apprecoated, thanks, Jen Jen 

PS the sender no longer has the file so it cant be resent  😞

Hey @JenJen1, let's see what we can find about this. 


Did you receive the file in a shared link on your email, or did the message mention that you were added to it? 


Can you find the file in your Share tab by any chance?


Give me a nudge of any updates, thanks!
