Is there a feature where when you or the app uploads the photo to drop box it then removes it from the phone. I have a difficult time when uploading alot of photos from my phone to drop box confirming that all the photos are now ON my drop box and feel safe to take them off my phone... I'm talking 1000's of photos and can't possibly confirm them all. It seems to be uploading theinbox AND my screenshots

No. The Camera Uploads feature doesn't delete photos or videos from your device. Likewise, deleting a file in the Dropbox app won't delete it on the device, and deleting a file on the device won't delete it from the Dropbox app.

 

The mobile apps do not sync in that manner.
