Restore from Dropbox

Restoring from dropbox allows you to restore your content to a previous daily backup. If you’ve connected a Dropbox account to your Workflowy, you can then restore from a daily backup at any point. Restoring will not overwrite your existing data, it will only put the restored data in a new item at the top of your account.


- Restoring from a backup is not instant, so please be patient as this can take up to 30 minutes for very large backup files.

- You also won't be able to load your account or save any changes while the backup is being restored.
