How to view folder history

Folder history is a Dropbox feature that shows all actions taken within a specific folder or its subfolders. In the folder history panel, you can view every time someone:

  • Moved a file within the folder
  • Edited a file within the folder
  • Renamed a file within the folder
  • Added a file to the folder
  • Deleted something from the folder

You can view folder history from the last 180 days, unless you have the extended version history (EVH) or unlimited version history (UVH) add-on. If you have EVH or UVH, the length of your folder history matches your version history.

Note: You can only restore files and folders within your version history

To view the history of a specific folder and its subfolders:

  1. Sign in to dropbox.com.
  2. Click Files.
  3. Click the name of the folder you’d like to view the history of.
  4. Click Folder history.

To view the history of all the folders in your account:

  1. Sign in to dropbox.com.
  2. Click Files.
  3. Click Folder history.
