Lost files after restoration

Level 3

I had to wipe my computer and reload the operating system. It is an iMac...I see my error now. I should have disconnected my drop box....but after redoing everything I have my files but it seems they are from a few weeks ago. I am missing all current info. How can I restore?

Hey there @travelannie - sorry to hear about this

Can you first have a look at your events page and let me know if you're able to restore your accidentally deleted files from there?

If you stumble upon an issue, please let me know and I'll reach out to your Dropbox associated email address to put you in touch with our Restorations team.

The files are not there at all. When reloading dropbox it created a new and old dropbox and the files from the last 30 days were gone from both. [email removed by moderator]

Sorry to hear about this Annie.

Did those files ever make it to our servers to begin with? Were you able to see them on our website at some point?

Any additional information will be much appreciated!
