What Happens When I Delete a Photo or Video in Dropbox?

If you delete a photo, video or file from Dropbox, then it is just removed from your folder but not yet permanently deleted. By default, Dropbox saves a history of deleted photos & videos for 30 days. This facility is available for all Dropbox users. That means you can recover them back within 30 days. If you purchase a 'Extended version History' add-on feature, then you can recover your photos and videos for 1 year. Dropbox for Business users can recover files for the lifetime of their accounts. You can also delete a photo or video permanently. To delete a photo or video permanently, go to your Dropbox account and click the 'Trash' icon. Browse the photo or video that you want to delete permanently. Click 'Permanently delete' button located at the top of the file browser.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
