Can't delete certain photos from my account

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I'm unable to delete certain photos in my Camera Uploads folder. I own that folder and I'm the only person who can view it. Some photos delete no problem. When trying to delete others, however, I get "This operation isn't permitted."

Thanks for your help,

Hi @kaivalyapada, are you using the Dropbox site or the mobile app when this happens?

Are the files different in any way, such as being exceptionally large, or some other reason? Are you able to delete files directly via File Explorer/Finder? 

Keep me posted!
