PowerPoint Files Changed Over Night

PowerPoint Files Changed Over Night

Our team's dropbox PowerPoint files have all been edited. The changes made are some text overlapping and format changes. This was done to every PowerPoint file in our dropbox which is thousands of files. Has anyone else dealt with this?

Dropbox itself cannot do this - it doesnt have the capability to alter files. 


When opening the file are you making sure you are all using the same version of the software etc.?


Also, if you think a single computer has done the changes go to one of the files at and click on the option to restore a previous version - you'll see here who updated the file and when.
