File names weren't changed when uploading photos

File names weren't changed when uploading photos

Last time drop box synced my photos it changed all the names to something useful, which was great. Date and time. Don't know why all photos aren't tagged so sensibly. This time, it kept the worthless file name or came with. I liked the old way

Hi @Scaeascaea, thanks for messaging the Community!

 

How did you upload the photos to your account exactly?

 

The automatic renaming is part of the camera upload feature, where the files are named according to the date and time of the photo or video.

 

This will help me to assist further!
