Camera Uploads from two linked Apple devices

Camera Uploads from two linked Apple devices

Just turned on the Dropbox Camera upload feature on my iPad. It has started uploading all the pictures/videos from the camera reel to the Camera Upload Dropbox folder.

 

My Apple ID is linked so all the pics/videos also appear on my two Iphones. I also want to turn on automatic upload to the Camera Upload Folder on my two Iphones. However, does this mean the same picture/video will appear twice in the Dropbox Camera Upload folder?

Hi @jacob_lec, thanks for using Dropbox and posting on our Community!

To directly get to the chase, you won't be seeing duplicates of the files you upload via the automatic camera uploads feature, only if you have two or more copies of the same file stored in your device's camera roll.

If a file has already been uploaded once, it won't get backed up again to your account from another device.

I hope this helps.
