I recently tried for the first time Dropbox Rewind to try and recover a Screenflow huge file that was corrupted due to the incompatibility of Screenflow with Dropbox.
However I made two mistakes:
• Chose the wrong moment to Rewind to ( about 28 hours ago) - and it is was not far back enough to find the really vital Screenflow File ( see elsewhere on the Forum a recent post abou this issue).
• I then discovered that some current files I had been working on ( which I had forgotten were located in Dropbox) - were completely wiped out by the Rewind.
Could someone explain ( which the Dropbox Info does not do clearly enough) step - by - step the following:
How to see on 'Rewind' and locate - possibly view the different versions of a file stored on Dropbox over a 48 hour time period I have some key .numbers and .pages files that now need to be recovered from the disastrous rewind as well as the huge Screenflow project which is not yet recovered.
PS I should point out that one of my working practises is always to RENAME a given file which includes the date last used. So for example 'Motor Expenses'.pages which make contain years of information will be constantly renamed with the last time I opened the file - ie 'Motor Expenses Sunv. 23.09 16 Aug 2020'.pages would be the most recent name of the file.
Although this helps me locate immediately via Spotlight the file when I need it, from a Dropbox Box rewind point of view it is disastrous because if I save this now, Dropbox considers it a new file ( logically) and if I rewind to 48 hours ago this file and all its information of years is wiped out..
I need to Forward Wind on Dropbox? Is this possible?
