Help!!!!! I just lost four files on my device!

So I was trying to upload 4 video files from my videos folder in the File Manager to Dropbox. When they were moved to the dropbox folder, I tapped sync. However, I was getting an error message saying the files were too large to sync (even though they were only 350 mb each). So, I quit the app and tried again. However, when I returned to the Dropbox folder, the 4 video files were GONE. I couldn't find them there or in the videos folder. What do I do? Are they gone for good?

Re: Help!!!!! I just lost four files on my device!

dropbox has a recovery feature


for the phone memory if they are gone then there is no recovery


for SD card you can use a recovery program on a PC to get them back possibly
