Why does it say file deleted?
Files sent via the DropBox automatically expire after a number of days set by the sender. Additionally the sender can choose to delete the file at any time. If the file has been deleted, contact the recipient for more information.

I need to send this file to another person. What do I do?
Files sent via the DropBox are for specified recipients only. Forwarding the email notification of a file does not enable the recipient to download the file. In order for a user to download the file via DropBox they must have been granted access by the sender.
