Re: Dropbox only able to batch upload less than 1000 files

Dropbox only able to batch upload less than 1000 files

Is there a 1000 limit for the number of files you can batch upload to dropbox? I get this error. Is there a way to get around it? Is the 1000 limit only for 1 folder or the entire dropbox folder? For example if i have 6000 files I put each 1000 files into a folder so I would have 6 folders?

There is a limit of 1000 files per upload batch. (The batchUploadFiles method is implemented using uploadSessionFinishBatch which itself has the 1000 file limit. It's documented for uploadSessionFinishBatch, but I'll ask the team to add it to the documentation for batchUploadFiles as well.)

Note that this limit is not per-folder, only per-upload batch. You can upload any number of files to a single folder, but you need to do so in batches of 1000 files each maximum.
