Hey there @MichGarcia - how are you today?

Could you please elaborate on what are you trying to accomplish and what device(s) are you using to do it?

If I understood correctly and you're on an Android device wanting to export your Dropbox files to your SD card then note that you can export a file to your external SD card by following these steps:

  • Tap the Quick Action button to the right of the filename
  • Scroll down and tap “Export”
  • Tap “Save to device”
  • Select your external SD card*

  • If you do not see your external SD card listed, while you are in the “Save to” menu (after tapping “Save to device”), tap “Menu” then “Settings” and then select “Display advanced devices”. You will then see your external SD card show up as an export location.

I hope this helps to some extent while I'll wait for your answer with additional information so as to send you the most appropriate next steps if neeeded.

PS: Make sure you're using our most recent version of the mobile app which is 120.2. for Android users.

Hello @Tony18, Which device are you using to transfer the photos? Is the Dropbox app installed on your device? If you are on a computer with app installed, your photos might be already syncing to your local Dropbox folder. You can copy the files from your loccal folder to the SD card. If you do not have Dropbox app installed, you can download the photos using a browser directly to your SD card.
