This morning I plugged my iPhone into the charger and started uploading pics and videos via the DB app. The file count was slightly over 2,000. At the end of the day with only 500 pictures remaining, a message appeared stating the iPhone memory was almost full. It has been just a few weeks since checking the memory on the phone but I recall less than half of the 128GB were used. But even if I am mistaken and it was just "over" half of the memory was used, could the transfer of pics and videos cause the memory to fill so quickly? Why has his happened?
Under the iPhone Storage, it shows the DropBox app is using 330MB.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Good morning Walter, Thanks for your reply. It wasn't so much an error but really a warning that my phone memory was almost full at the end of the day yesterday when about 1,500 pics and video files out of approx 2,000 files were uploaded to DB using the DB app. See the image below, about half of the storage is filled with pics. That just wasn't the case before the upload process started as written in the original message.
If the action of uploading pics from the iPhone to DB has caused my phone memory to fill, could I copy the pics from the folder named "Camera Upload" to another file for archive storage then delete the pic files in the Camera Upload folder? Would that automatically clear the pics from the DB app on my phone and make more storage available?
Additionally, the DB app doesn't appear to be sucking up space per the other image below. Any guess what is happening?
Thanks in advance for your reply, Jason
