file recovery

Explorer | Level 3

I downloaded dropbox to my laptop and accidentaly i connected my desktop to dropbox without realizing it. After that i saw to my dropbox account, files of my computer and i deleted them because i didn't know that these files will be deleted from my computer. So, i would like to recover my files. Also, i would like to tell you that i found files to the deleted files and i tried to restore them but they are all empty. Please, help me to recover/restore all my files to my computer because i don't have a backup.

Re: file recovery


Hi @vasw, thanks for reaching out to us on the Dropbox Community. 


Since it sounds like our computer backup feature was enabled on your desktop app, could you try turning it off and moving the files back to their original locations, as mentioned in this article?


Let me know how it goes, cheers!
