I can't see the "Version history" option for a file in my account, what can I do?

Explorer | Level 3

I've somehow lost a file to something I was playing with on an accounting program. I am trying to follow the instruction for version recovery, but after clicking the check box after hovering over the file, there isn't a "version history" option anywhere that I can find.

When you browse the file in Dropbox web, you will see the (...) on the right of the file for options menu, there you will find Version history
