I think some files have been deleted, how can I recover them?

Explorer | Level 3

I think I deleted my sms and call logs from my drop box and I can not figure out how to get them back. I looked at the instructions on how to recover but my android phone does not give me a trash can to search and find and recover. Is there any other way to recover these files?

Re: deleted sms and call log

Hi @bensb,

If any files are still in Dropbox (not only SMS or call logs), you can restore them through Dropbox website. After login, got to files view and select изображение.png, so all ( including deleted and still existing in the storage) files could be seen. If you are lucky, click the ellipsis associated to deleted entry (file(s)/directory(ies)) and select 'Restore'. winking face That's it.

Hope this helps.

Hi, I think you can first try to recover them from Dropbox website. If it doesn't work, you can using data recovery programs, such as Bitwar, easeus, minitool, etc.

Good luck.
