Hello @gianchiiii, thanks for checking in with us. 

If you didn't add an items to your Dropbox account, either from the website or the desktop app, then it shouldn't have been synced to your account. 

In turn, if it was removed without having being uploaded or synced, then the cause is very possibly related to something outside of the Dropbox app. 

Just to make sure though, could you check your events page to see if you can find a recent record of the items being added or removed?

Check it out and let me know what you find, cheers!
