Extended version history overview

Extended version history (EVH) was previously available as a Dropbox Plus subscription add-on. It is no longer available for purchase.

If you previously purchased EVH, you can recover a file or revert to an older file or folder version within a year of deletion or edit.

By default:

  • Dropbox Basic or Plus accounts can recover any file deleted or changed in the last 30 days. 
  • Dropbox Business accounts can recover any file deleted or changed in the last 120 days. 
  • Dropbox Professional accounts can recover any file deleted or changed in the last 180 days. 

Permanent deletions and storage quota

  • Permanently deleted files are not recoverable with extended version history
  • Previous versions and deleted files do not count against your storage quota

Shared folders and extended version history

If you unshare a folder, you will be unable to recover any deleted files and versions from that folder. Learn more about what happens when you unshare a folder
