I reset Windows 10 a few days ago because of a virus. After I reinstalled Dropbox, I unwisely I now realize, chose the optioin for Dropbox to autosync my desktop files. The result was that I got a message from Dropbox that I had run out of space in Dropbox.
I do not want to increase my space in Dropbox. But now most of the files that were on my desktop (before the autosync) are gone.
Is there any way I can undo what happened in the autosync, so that I can get my files back?
I understand your concern over the missing files. Could you check if you've disabled the computer backup feature on the Dropbox desktop application?
If there are any deleted files, you can try recovering them from the Dropbox site.
If the missing files weren’t syncing to your account, then it wouldn’t be possible to recover them from the site. However, it might be possible to recover the files from the local machine from the recycle bin, or using a third party app or service to do so.
