Allow to choose a time to rollback with in Rewind

Explorer | Level 4

I am trying to rewind a folder that got messed up when I used a third party application to manage the files.

I figured this would be no problem, as I have Dropbox Plus and rewind.

The problem is the rewind .. "wizard"? ... forces you to first pick a date, and then you have to select the specific file operation that you want to rewind from. It loads 5 at a time, and you have to click more to keep scrolling back.

I am dealing with 1000s of operations!! I can't keep clicking "Show older changes" 100s of times....

All this part of the process is doing is selecting a time. It should be possible to just input a time (e.g. 4pm).

I just find it amazing that so many services get the basics so wrong. Dropbox is amazing, unless you need to recover. Than you're b0rked.

agreed 100%

In the past I've had awesome self rescues with Dropbox, intuitive and fast.

Now even using the hidden feature https://www.dropbox.com/events is broken, and support have no idea how to achieve a basic resotre of a folder

 

Boo hiss to 'rewind' and all the extra dross Dropbox is pushing

This is the reason I'm starting to explore other options for my backup and my growing company.
