D2L: Restore a Deleted Dropbox


The Dropbox is a tool that allows instructors to create folders to hold students assignments and submissions. If a dropbox folder is accidentally deleted, it may be restored to the course. Restoring a folder restores the submitted files, if there were any, in the folder. Additional information on restoring a deleted dropbox can be found at Restoring Deleted Dropbox Folders in the Desire2Learn Online Resource Center.  Following this link will direct you away from the UW-Platteville KnowledgeBase.
