When I delete and restore a file, are comments also restored?

Just a general question about recovering deleted files: we have comments that's added to some files and I was wondering: when a file is deleted and later restored, are the same comments also restored?

Hi @davidpanda1 - welcome to the Dropbox Community and thanks for posting your first question! 

To directly cut to the chase, yes, comments will be shown on deleted files that have been restored. There will be an indication of this as well as it will be mentioned that the comments were made on an older version of the file in question. 

Let me know if you have any additional questions David; I'll be more than happy to follow up.
