Lost Documents

Lost Documents

I accidently deleted all of the documents on my computer. When I went to recover these through old backups, they were lost. I can see through Word that there is evidence that my files have been syncing to DropBox. When I log into my Dropbox account, it doesn't show any of these documents, and the files are not accessible. I have tried all local methods of recovery that the manufacturer of my computer has provided, but I still cant find any of these files. Help please!!!

As long as they were deleted within 30 days (for free users) you can follow https://help.dropbox.com/files-folders/restore-delete to get them back. 

 

www.dropbox.com/events will show you how long ago they were deleted if needed.
