Hi Walter, typically keep them on my mac with drobox synced for backup.

 

After much searching i did find a restore option and after several 'challenges' managed to get everything back.

 

Thanks for picking up on this for me.

Hey @Gary_Neutral; welcome to our Community and thanks for using the computer backup feature!

 

Can you please let me know if you chose to leave your files in Dropbox or keep them on your computer upon disabling the feature?

 

If you can't find them locally on your computer, do you see any sign of them in your account's homepage, the deleted files page or the events page? 

 

Thanks!
