How can I remove files that were added to a shared folder?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Somebody in my team added a lot of files to our dropbox. Files that I had removed or moved earlier.

 

This makes a complete mess of the whole folder structure with duplicates and old names.

How can I remove these files?

Hi Ulrika, if it isn’t possible to delete the unnecessary files on your end, there is an option to rollback certain shared folders, or the entire account to an earlier point in time.

If you’re the team admin of a Dropbox Business team, you can also rollback changes made to team folders.

If you’re interested in this, let me know and we can reach to you via the email associated with your forum profile.
