deleted access to a shared folder

New member | Level 2

A friend of mine shared a folder with me several years ago.  I thought I downloaded it but when I checked the zip, none of the files in the folder were there.  I have already deleted the zip and in a dropbox clean up i deleted my access to the folder.  The person who shared it with me can't find it either.  Is there a way to rewind my account and restore the access?  Folder is in my deleted files area and is called Fascinating Stranger


Thank you

Hi @SFBobzilla 

Not possible to do it over several years, no, sorry. 

Even as a paying user restores are limited to 120 days AND it would have to be the owner of the share who did the rollback - as you left the share you wouldnt be able to get access back to it without their say so.
