I had a word file on autosave that completely disappeared. It should have been uploading directly to dropbox. Any idea how to recover it?
Hi @smodes, thanks for messaging the Community!
Were you editing the Word file from the Dropbox folder on your machine, or from the Dropbox site directly?
What icon does the file show in the Dropbox folder? Is the Dropbox desktop application showing that it's up to date?
Keep me posted!
