Recovering and restoring deleted files or folders on Dropbox

Sections in this article:

Restoring a deleted file or folder

  1. Sign in to dropbox.com.
  2. Click Files in the left sidebar.
  3. Click Deleted files in the left sidebar.
  4. Locate the deleted file or folder you want to recover, and click on the name.
  5. Click Restore.

You can restore files that you had edit access to. Files that you have view-only access to are visible on the Deleted files page, but you can't restore them.

Note: Restorations can take time if there's a large number of files to restore.

Recover multiple files or folders

If you have a Dropbox Basic (free) or Plus account, you can recover any file or folder deleted in the last 30 days. If you have a Dropbox Professional or Business account, you have 120 days to recover deleted files. 

  1. Sign in to dropbox.com.
  2. Click Files in the left sidebar.
  3. Click Deleted files in the left sidebar.
  4. Locate the deleted files or folders you want to recover. Hover over the name of the deleted file or folder you want to recover and click the checkbox icon for every item you want to recover.
    • Note: You can select multiple files or folders at once by clicking the checkbox icon.
  5. Click the Restore button to restore the deleted file or folder.

Did you delete a shared folder? You can add it back to your Dropbox.

See how Dropbox makes file recovery simple.

I deleted a shared folder—will that affect other members of it?

Deleting a shared folder in Dropbox only affects your account. When you delete a shared folder, you leave it. Leaving a shared folder by deleting it takes that folder out of your account, but others will keep their access. You can add the folder back to your Dropbox account at any time. However, deleting individual files from a shared folder will remove them for all members of the shared folder.
