Folder Deletion Restore in Dropbox
Just a warning to people
My home machine dropbox disc failed and I put a new one in and I had to re-install Dropbox.
The Cloud Gods decided that since this Dropbox folder was empty, then I wanted to delete all my Dropbox files (60G!) instead of just re-downloading them)
Don't panic I thought, Dropbox has a roll-back mechanism - unfortunately it is on a file by file basis!!!
So, it seems you have to raise a support ticket and ask Dropbox nicely if they will roll things back for you.
In the meantime - life without all my tech support/downloads is like going back to washing clothes by hand in the river - no quick running of portable apps from \\server\dropbox\apps
And sorrry for slowing the internet down as all my servers start deleting and undeleting (I really hope that there is a good caching mechanism in place!)
Merrry Christmas :)
