Error message when trying to dump my phone files into my TB DropBox.

Error message when trying to dump my phone files into my TB DropBox.

I'm just trying to data dump a phone I plan on retiring and slide the DCIM into my DropBox, maybe a 100 MBs at most, why am I getting the error message "empty files cannot be uploaded?"  Taking some snips right now and I can't be the first one who tries to move phone data directly to DropBox. I'm thinking maybe my data has to be on a localized server? That would be supremely antiquated.

100% I had to localize it before uploading, is there a way to cut out the middle man her DB?

Hi @Rachael1239, welcome to our Community! 

 

Do you use our website, or mobile app when trying to move your data to Dropbox? Can you also walk me through the steps that you follow on your end, and if you use any third-party apps to do that? 

 

Keep me posted, and we'll take it from there!
