    How to recover files?

    Asked by elenice_ma on October 01, 2016 at 07:08 AM

    Unfortunately, I deleted questions and realized that the files related to them were also lost. How can I get them?

    Thank you!

    I can still access the files through our email logs so I think we still have it on our servers, but I'm not sure how long. You can check and view your email logs in your account > history section.

    We do not recommend deleting a field if you wish to keep its data. You can just hide it in the form and add a new field. Hide field option is in the context menu:

    Or, clone the form and use the cloned version
