Hey @MarionKring, I'd be happy to help!

 

Generally, you can recover deleted files within your restoration window, by following these steps

 

Could you give that a try and let me know how it goes?

 

Thanks!

Yes, you can restore your deleted files from Dropbox. To do so you can click File in the left sidebar > click deleted files > Click on your multiple files by click checkbox icon > Click Restore.

 

One more option is backup of your pc, here I mean if you have taken backup of your files in another hard drive you can retrieve from their also. An alternative solution you can try any free utility programs like recuva, stellar data recovery free edition, testdisk etc. These programs can recover accidentally deleted data, formatted hard drive data, lost data efficiently. Thanks
