I can't see the "Version history" option for a file in my account, what can I do?

Explorer | Level 3

I've somehow lost a file to something I was playing with on an accounting program. I am trying to follow the instruction for version recovery, but after clicking the check box after hovering over the file, there isn't a "version history" option anywhere that I can find.

When you browse the file in Dropbox web, you will see the (...) on the right of the file for options menu, there you will find Version history

Hello

I would like to understand how can I see data from 2017 or 2016 especially screenshots I had acumulated before Dropbox modify in early 2018 January, since I never deleted anything, I have account before 2016 and cant find ''Click Version history.'' When i selected Screenshots folder, how can i see history since it doesn't appear ?

Thank you

Hello @Cristian Adrian, The Version history is only available on individual files. If you are a paid member, you can use Rewind to revert a folder https://help.dropbox.com/files-folders/restore-delete/rewind But even in that case, I am afraid that Dropbox cannot bring back a folder from 2016 or 2017 unless you have purchased extended version history or unlimited version history add-on.
