HELP Terriffied-Unlinked My Mac= All files on Mac Are Gone

New member | Level 2

HELP

I downloaded dropbox desktop, and thought it would be a good idea to link my Mac. Then I realized it wasn't a good idea, as this dropbox account is for work.

It only got part way done syncing when I found out how to Unlink my device. When I unlinked it, I had no idea that all of my files would disappear from my mac!!
I want to undo this, and I'm terrified that, since it only synced a percentage of my files, that many of my files will be gone forever. PLEASE TELL ME THAT'S NOT THE CASE

I'm absolutely terrified!!

Hello @Elle9, let's see what we can do on this. 

 

Could you first have a look and see if you can find the files you're looking for online, on your local Dropbox folder, original locations, or your Trash? 

 

Also, even since you unlinked your desktop app, have you tried reinstalling it? 

 

Let me know and we'll take it from there.
