Hey there @Jez19  - how are you today?

As you'd be using the shared links feature to do this in the first place - probably by embedding shared links which can be forced to download the files they point to - the deletions of the files would also affect the other websites you use to host your files.

Shared links will break if the file has been deleted from its Dropbox folder.

In such cases, you'll need to check to see that the file is still located in your Dropbox folder. You can look at your deleted files on the following page:

Please also be aware that there is a 20GB daily limit on link traffic for Basic accounts, and a 200GB daily limit for paid accounts. Exceeding this limit will disable your shared links.

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any more questions!
