How long does Dropbox keep my deleted files and information?

Dropbox saves deleted and previous versions of files for a specific period of time in case you want to recover them. After this period of time, the deleted files are marked for deletion in our system and are purged from our storage servers. They can no longer be recovered.

The period of time files are available for recovery depends on your Dropbox plan:

  • Dropbox Basic (free) and Plus users have 30 days
  • Dropbox Plus users who previously purchased extended version history have a full year (however, this add-on is no longer available for purchase)
  • Dropbox Professional and Business users (Standard, Advanced, Enterprise, or Education) have 120 days to recover files

Permanently deleting files

You can initiate the purging of files from our storage servers immediately when you mark files for permanent deletion.

Dropbox Business users: The ability to permanently delete files may be limited to your team’s admin.

Deleting your account

If you delete your Dropbox Basic, Plus, or Professional account, we will initiate deletion of the Dropbox files you store on Dropbox after 30 days. If you are a user on a Dropbox Business account, only your admin can disable your account and delete your files.

See the "Retention" section in our Privacy Policy for more details.
