Hello! I received an email from the correct Dropbox address telling me I had deleted a lot of files but can retrieve them within a month by clicking “here”. Looks suspicious, I did not do anything special lately, and I think this is phishing mail… but it seems genuine. Did anybody else receive that email?

Hover your cursor (DO NOT CLICK) over the "here" button in the email and see what URL it will open.

Thank you for your advice. It seems to be a genuine Dropbox email. I think a lot of files were deleted during my cleaning of the Amazon Music files on Itunes... difficult to know exactly what is behind since there are thousands of weird files. So I think the Dropbox warning was true but nothing to do after all 🙂 

thank you anyway!
