I recently cleared the hardrive on my computer, starting from scratch. When I went to continue work in dropbox, I noticed all my recent edits had been lost. Edits are only there from a couple months ago. This is true both on my new destop version and online. When I go to "devices" I see the previous version of my computer as having made edits when I remember having made them (a couple weeks ago) so clearly some activity made it into the system, but the files are gone. What happened and what can I do to recover my files? I had been working on the desktop app.
I do not know if the files had synced properly, I didn't think to check as I've never had issues, but I have no reason to believe they would be behaving any differently than usual at that time. I checked the events page and none of my activity from the time in question is logged. Just this trace record under devices:
