I'm slightly new to dropbox and I accidently archived an entire much needed folder, where did it go? How can I get it back?

If you don’t locate the folder in question from the deleted files tab, as a next step, check your events page

Hey @Fazal, thanks for nudging us on this thread, and sorry to hear that you're having trouble restoring a folder. 

Have you by any chance tried restoring the deleted items from another browser or an incognito window? 

What about after clearing you browser's cache, and making sure that you're not running any third party browser extensions or plugins?

Let me know of any updates!

If the folder is found on the events page, how to restore it? Because there is no Restore button on the events page. Thanks
