Help! My friend sent me a video he took of our wedding in 2014. I went to view it and it says “file not available” I’ve watched it before how do I recover my video?!

You never downloaded or saved the video to your own account. You were just viewing the file directly from your friend's account. They've either removed the link or deleted the file. You'll need to contact them to ask for a new link. Make sure you download the file or save it to your own Dropbox account so you'll always have it.
