Recovered a Large Folder

Collaborator | Level 8

We have Dropbox Business... the other day I had to recover a very large folder with many subfolders. I am noticing that since I did that we have lots of new folders and they are folder that were previously deleted or renamed.  Its like recovering the deleted folder also  recursivly recovered subfolds.  I can't tell you how much work I am going to have to put into strainting these folders out... Is this the way it really is supposed to work?  Seems crazy that it would be designed to work that way.  I also wonder if it happend that way because there was so much data in the folder.
