Huge hat tip to my colleague Averill Buchanan, who saved my bacon last week after sharing this excellent nugget of information for Dropbox users: How do I recover deleted files?
In a nutshell, you can restore any file that you've deleted from your Dropbox account in the past 30 days.
Yes, I've put it to the test – after a bit of a tech meltdown in which I accidentally deleted a folder containing 900 cherished photos spanning the past eight years of family life, I recalled a Facebook conversation with a group of SfEP colleagues that included Averill's top tip.
The recovery procedure was an absolute doddle and my snaps are safe. And this takes Dropbox beyond a mere file-sharing or back-up tool!
