lost file !!

lost file !!

New member | Level 2

I have a file that for historical reasons I always accessed thru the url


[Removed as per Community Guidelines]


Now that the link is busted I can't actually find the original. Any ideas? Can I fingure out what account this would be for from the url? My main account has no such file and I can't seem to find it in any others either.

Re: lost file !!


Hi @jeremyrutman, thanks for taking the time to message us!


It sounds like this was a shared link to a file that isn't on your account. Currently, there isn't a method to see who this link belonged to.


Did you receive this link via an email from a colleague? If so, it might be worth checking if the email was sent from someone you know, so they might know more details.


If you need any further info, please let me know!
