How To Delete Dropbox Files From Your Account

Dropbox was founded in 2007 and is a Web-based file hosting created by Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi, the hole concept is pretty great : users can store and share folders and files with other users across the Internet with the helo of file synchronization.

The best thing that I personally love and enjoy so much wen it comes to Dropbox is that it lets us the users to simply recover all of those files that was accidentally deleted from your computer’s hard drive.

In the case of restoring some files that are unavailable on the PC, all you have to do will be to simply go to the section named “Deleted files” of the Dropbox site and then select that files you want to recover.

You did delete a file from the local folder, not to worry is best for all the users to know that Dropbox doesn’t delete those files but instead Dropbox keeps the files on the server.

The files will be moved into another folder and this is way you will never lose those files for good and later you may restore them. Is something like the familiarized Recycle bin of the operating system Windows.

When we delete the files in Windows than the operating system moves that file into the Recycle bin and form there the user will have to manually empty it.

Let us say you need to get read for good of some important files, well the best way to achieve this in Dropbox will be: first delete those files from your PC and then they will be cleaned out of the server too and now you do not need to worry about dose important files anymore.

Another vise way to achieve that “quick extermination” of those files will be to log in to Dropbox site, and then go ahead and chose the option “Show Deleted Files” after this just select the files that was deleted and please click on the “More” > Permanently Delete and this is how you achieve a deletion.

In the Windows operating system that data is will not be deleted for good if you do not know how to securely delete them.
