Restoring a Deleted Dropbox

The Dropbox event log enables you to view information on specific activity for individual dropbox folders. The event log tracks when users create, delete, and restore dropbox folders. Once an action is taken, the event log records the name and ID of the dropbox folder, the action, the user who made the change, and the date it was performed.

NOTE: Dropbox event log only tracks folder items you create, delete, and restore since Learning Environment 10.2. Dropbox folders you import from any previous Learning Environment are not tracked in event log until you act on them (e.g. delete a folder).
