Permanently deleted files

Permanently deleted files

Hi, It looks like I accidently deleted my files by mistake a while back and I couldn't restore them or even click on the files from the Events page. Maybe because it's been over 30 days?  Any chance I can restore them somehow? The desktop app was not running and syncing when I edited the files last time. 

 

Thanks

Hello Ghazwan

if it has been over 30 days, there is nothing you can do.  The servers purge these items automatically.  So sorry.

 

if you have another PC that has your Dropbox folder on them, perhaps, disconnect the internet and turn the PC on and grab those files and drag them out of Dropbox.
