Re: I've lost my files

Hi there, if you’re upgrading to a Dropbox Business team, then you won’t lose your files.
If the files were deleted somehow, could you confirm if you can locate and restore them from the deleted files page?
If they’re not there, could you check your shared folders in case they were unshared from your account?
Let me know how it goes!
