The issue in GetHuman3358944's own words
You sent me an email about a possible unintentional mass deletion. I had intentionally deleted a very large folder with completed project subfolders by copying them onto a hard-drive and them removing them from DropBox. This was a couple weeks ago now. **HOWEVER, when I compare the number of files in that copied folder on my hard drive, the number of files is far, far smaller than the number of files your email to me reports and so I'm concerned. I think the simplest thing to do is to restore them all and start over, BUT I cannot restore them onto my laptop (which is actively on my dropbox account) because it would overfill that smaller hard drive. What I'd like to do is to route the restoration straight to a hard drive. Is this possible???
