Why do I no longer receive the "warning" dialog when deleting files from my Dropbox folder?

New member | Level 2

Prior to the last update we would receive a warning when delating files

We are up to date and using "Dropbox 73-4-118"

We are  no longer receiving the warning when delating files 

We have reinstalled the version 73-4-118, this has not helped

Is there a setting or option we need to use

Thanks for your help

Re: "Warning" about deleting Files

Hey there @WW4,
Just to clarify, the warning that you are referring to, is this dialog box that notifies you deleting files will remove it from all other devices too? Is it possible that at some point you have checked the “Don’t notify me again”? 
When you performed the reinstall can you let me know if you installed the latest version on top of the current software. Otherwise, did you fully uninstall the app, rebooted the device and then installed the current version again? Can you let me know if you see this behaviour over multiple devices or just one?
A step I would like you to try would just be to check your desktop app notifications and also your account notification online, and let me know what you see currently checked there. 
Let me know what you find - Thanks!
