Unwanted prompt to remove items?

Unwanted prompt to remove items?

Hi. Dropbox keeps randomly prompting me to a remove specific file 'and 401 other items from your Dropbox account and all devices'. It is happening on a regular basis without me doing anything. This morning it came up as soon as I logged into my laptop. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance🙂

It's not random, and while it may not be "you" deleting files, something must be. Either you, someone else (if it's a shared folder) or some process on your computer has to be doing it. Dropbox doesn't (and can't) just randomly delete files.

 

Recover one of the files and then look at its version history. It will show you where the deletion is occurring.
