I only sync photos from my android to Dropbox. For some reason only about half my photos are syncing on the app and my web Dropbox. I tired manually uploading them but it just sits and they just don't upload. I've had this problem before and kind wouldn't be wanting to upgrade as this seems to be a constant issue from time to time. This time it's just not syncing all my photos and I can't understand why. I've got enough space in my Dropbox.

Thanks for your reply Walter. I had already cleared the cache, but hadn't logged out and restarted my phone. Have done all that now and no more photos from the weekend have uploaded yet. This is the other issue I find some photos uploaded virtually straight away and then ones from the weekend, I haven't even got half of them yet. Can't even manually upload them. I'm kind of over Dropbox!
Last night I tried uploading just one photo at a time and they are uploading but painfully slowly! I don't want to be wasting my time sitting uploading one photo at a time when I might have 20 or 30 photos. Videos haven't been uploading and I only just realised I didn't have it turned on to upload videos. I've turned it on and a couple of videos from November last year still haven't uploaded. I don't use my cell data to upload I've turned that off. I've been out and about and logged into other WIFI networks and they still don't upload. Like I said only about half my photos automatically uploaded from the weekend and have no idea why only some random ones did. They weren't even like the first 10 I took. I was on a different WIFI at the weekend and couldn't get any to upload except for two but they took hours. When I got back home that's when a few uploaded automatically and then just stopped.
Hi Lori, thanks for your further help. I'm very tech savvy and had checked my camera uploads were turned on when this problem started. It was while doing that I discovered the video uploads wasn't turned on. However, when I checked after receiving your message oddly camera uploads were turned off. Now, as you know there are a few steps to having to turn off so it's not like it could get turned off accidentally.
The only while charging setting was turned off. I had set for uploads to happen only with more than 30% battery which is what my phone had. It had 33% and put on the charge. My photos have now all synced automatically. Very strange.
Thanks for your help.
