When adding image files to Dropbox a duplicate file for each image is created. For example, I will upload an image file named
That file gets duplicated and looks like this:
._DSC_2563.jpg Notice the period placed in front of the filename.
The original file is 2MB while the duplicated file is 4KB. This duplicated file is not an image file. So if I am uploading 500 images, it will say that I am uploading 1,000 images and then almost doubles the time it takes to upload. After uploading all files, I then have to delete those duplicate files which takes a long time especially when uploading thousands of images.
I have attached a screen shot below of what it looks like
I work on a mac. I thought it might be a hidden file issue so I showed all hidden files in the directory and found 1 file called .bridgesort
so I deleted it. That was not the issue as the duplicate files were still created. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
