I lost all my files after adding a professional account to a personal one

New member | Level 2

Hello,

 

I added a second account, a professional account, to my personal account. All my files from my personal account "merged" but actually deleted. I can t find them nor on my laptop nor on the site. When I try the "Rewind" option, It only gets more weird, and does recover all my files, and actually deleted more. Please help since I cannot email (cant find the proper "recovery" link asked to email you.

Files are gone - Self-Removed from Shared folders?

New member | Level 2

Hello,

 

Most of my files are gone and most folders are nearly empty.

On 11/26 I added a work account to my DB. I checked my personal account events page and all my folders says “You removed your access to the shared folder”. How can I get access back to them please?

Hi there @tanguylaurent, thanks for dropping by. 

 

I moved your second post under your first one, so that we can keep troubleshooting consistent. 

 

You mention that you added your professional account to your personal one. 

 

Could you clarify if you created a separate Dropbox account and associated it with your professional email, or if you joined a Business team with your personal account?

 

As for the shared folders, could you check your Share tab to see if they are there?

 

Have a look and let me know what you find, cheers!

Hello,

 

Thanks for your reply.

Basically, I have been using my personal account (using my prof. email address) for years to collaborate on some professional projects with my team.

On nov. 26th I joined their Business account using another email address (this time my pers. gmail. address).

The files and folders that are missing are not showing on the shared folders at all.

I tried to rewing but it only deleted more.

I see, thanks for your swift reply, @tanguylaurent

 

Could you go to this page to submit a ticket to our team, so that they can have a more in-depth look using internal tools available to them?

 

Once you do that, let me know the ID (eg. #1234567) associated with it so that I can pass your comments along.
