I'm missing my files after signing in to my account for a long time?

I haven't logged on to dropbox for a while, and did now because someone shared a file with me.  When signing in, i clicked the google account I was using, which automatically put my password in.  The next page said "create an account with this email?" which confused me because I was already signing in.  Anyway I clicked continue, and the account was empty apart from the shared file I was accessing.  What happened to my other files?  Was my previous account deactivated?

How long is a while? Dropbox accounts that are inactive for one year are often deleted, along with all their content.
