retrieve files deleted 6 months ago?

New member | Level 2


I deleted dropbox icon on my computer 6 months ago when I quit dropbox.  Now I realize that by doing so I deleted my entire work folder.  I have re-signed into dropbox but I do not see any of my files.  Dropbox does not recognize any files that I have previosly saved into it.  There is nothing in the "restore old files" on the right hand side.  Is there any chance I can retrieve my old files?

That won't be possible. Even with certain paid subscriptions, receovery time is only 120 days at most. For Basic and Plus accounts it's 30 days.
