1. I discovered this morning that as many as 80% of the files were listed as "deleted" from all folders in several of my shared Dropboxes. In Dropbox browser showing Deleted Files revealed many with "Deleted by you at 1130 am yesterday" Nope, not done. Some also said "Deleted by NamedColleague at 1130 am yesterday" Nope, not so. The two colleagues who share one of these dropboxes with me also find these files missing and same alleged perpetrator/time of the deletion. In others of my shared Dropboxes the same NamedColleague is alleged to have deleted files at 1130 am yesterday even though she has NO ACCESS to those Dropboxes which are not shared with her. 2. When we try to Restore from within Dropbox in browser mode some but not all of the missing files are restored compared to the files that are shown in our most recent Time Machine backup available (last Friday). Fortunately, we have Time Machine to restore all the missing files. 3. At the moment this problem only affects my shared Dropboxes all but one of which (the index case) are currently inactive - i.e. neither I nor the others who share them has used them for over a year so their contents are static. 4. I am concerned that this is some kind of malware that could escape outside my shared folders onto my computer if I move anything from the currently actively shared Dropbox. Please advise.
