    Deleted form submissions, Need to retreive them all, how can I do so?

    Asked by atlfw on July 11, 2011 at 09:32 PM



    I deleted form submissions to preserve space, but had no idea that I would not have access to the files that were uploaded with submission. Now that I need to access (via my email) I cannot open the files (jpegs and documents). I have not emptied the trash, so can I retrieve them? Need to know asap.

    Unfortunately, submissions do not get sent to the trash when deleted. Instead, they are deleted permanently. I am not sure if we can restore your files, but I will try to submit a request for it.

    We will let you know if our higher ups can do something about it. Thanks!

    Unfortunately, there is no way to recover deleted files.

    My recommendation would be to use the Dropbox integration feature in the future. This way you will always have a backup copy in your computer.
