Restoring process

Restoring process

Explorer | Level 4

I want to restore one of the previous versions of a particular file using a web site.

1) I find my file there

2) open the list of its versions

3) since there are so many version, I press "Load previous versions" a few times at the bottom of the page

4) find the version that I need and finally press Restore button

5) after that the web page refreshes itself and moves me to the folder where this file is located on a drobox-site

6) I open the file in my folder in Explorer.exe and I understand that it's not the version I needed for

7) so I have to repeat all the steps before from the very beginning

 

What annoys me more is that Dropbox does an absolutely unnecessary refresh of the web page on the step 5 and messes up forcing me to repeat all actions again.

Could you developers please fix it?

It is an ergonomic issue for all users of this function.

Let a user himself decide whether he wants to go back to folder.
