Deleting old pictures automatically (like loop recording)?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I (and many thousands of people) use Dropbox for security camera system event storage but it regularly fills up. I wish I could enable a setting to delete the oldest Dropbox pictures automatically like in the way my DVR or Dash Cam loop records.

Thank you @Lusil for your rapid reply. 😊🙏 I tried to like 👍❤️ your reply but it didn’t want to acknowledge it (button didn’t work). Anyway thanks.

P.S. I did submit an idea for this.
