I tried to transfer a couple of folders to dropbox, didn't know was over limit. All fine, I canceled the operation; but now the folders are missing from my computer. How am I supposed to get them back!

Hello there @Obelisco, I'm sorry to hear about the situation!

 

Just to clarify, were you trying to move the files into the local Dropbox folder on your computer, or via the website?

 

If you do a search in your computer's file browser for the name of the missing folders, do you get any results there?

 

Looking forward to hearing from you!
