I have iPhone and iPad.
Both of them saved photos to same folder and my photos are mixed.
How I can set different auto sync folder to different devices?

I already try: stop syncing, pushing some fotos to different folder, auto syncing window pop-up, starting auto sync with hope it will start working based on different folder.

Hey @michal9, thanks for reaching out to the Dropbox Community!

 

If you're using the automatic camera uploads feature and are uploading photos to the same account, these photos will get uploaded to the same camera uploads folder.

 

This is how the feature is set up, even if uploading from different devices.

 

The only thing you can do is manually separating them into different folders after they're uploaded.

 

I hope this clarifies things, but let me know if you have any questions.

It didn’t work.
Your automatisation work on date when file was loaded to Dropbox, not created(you have that meta data). I try to found 2021 in files names but I can’t be saved.

Now I manually moving files to different folders and is working, working, working…. When brake it didn’t move anything. It will be long night to clean this.

P.S. who need to group files by date of dropload instead creation date or last edit???

Need more support?
Who's talking
