Thanks for the swift and kind reply @sammytreasure; I truly appreciate it.

From my end, I just passed your comments to your existing ticket to give it a nudge in our Restoration's team's queue - you'll be hearing from them soon!

If there's anything you'd like to ask in the meantime, you're more than welcome to do so!

In case I don't hear back from you in the meantime, have a wonderful weekend!

Pls, help with ways to remove the BOPADOR virus from my account. I could not access any file in my dropbox account. The files are intact but I was unable to open them. I will appreciate anything I could do to recover the files.

Thank You.

Hi @sammytreasure - happy new Year!

As your new post echoes your original post from back in December, I moved it here to keep things neat around the Community.

As mentioned, those cases can be handled by our Restorations team so I'd suggest that you logged a ticket with our team and ask for assistance with this directly.

Let me know how it goes.

Exactly like you did the last time @sammytreasure!

Don't worry though; I've created one from my end by sending you an email to the email address that's connected to your Community's profile. 

Whenever you get the chance, please take a look at your inbox for my message and get back to me there so I can then send your request to our Restorations team. 

Thanks!
