Cannot restore deleted files

Explorer | Level 3

Hi there. I am working on a project and recently a whole bunch of files were deleted by an employee working on the project.

When I go to deleted files and try to restore them I get the error

There was a problem completing this request.


Can you please help with restoring these files?

Kind replacing these files? They are all the missing files in the Cardboard City Folder

Kind regards

Phil Brough

Hey Phil, are you the owner of the shared folder? You may not be able to restore deleted files unless you are the owner of the folder. If you are not the owner, is it possible to ask the person(s) who is owner?
