Re: My files deleted by dropbox

Hi @NSVISION20, thanks for joining the Community!

It looks like these files are in a shared folder, which could mean that someone else in that folder deleted them.

As Dropbox doesn't delete your files without any user interaction on them, you can check who deleted the files and which device by restoring one of them and viewing the version history.

This will help me to assist further!
