I have uploaded photos from Mac1. Now I want to upload more photos from Mac2. Quick/easiest way of doing this? Use Time Machine on Mac2?
Hey @nickslaymaker1, welcome to our Community! You can always use the website to manually upload content, or our desktop app.With the app, you can move or copy files into your Dropbox folder. This will automatically sync the new changes to the website and any other linked devices.Give this a try and let me know how it goes.Thanks.

Good morning Lori from me in England. Many thanks for your prompt reply to my query.
I'm very much a beginner to Dropbox and I'd be very grateful if you could give me a bit more help.
I have two Macs, 'Old Mac' and 'Newish Mac'. Old Mac has been gathering dust in a corner of my study for some years now. I have succesfully uploaded 3.4 GB of my 'Photography' folder' to Newish Mac.
Now I want to Upload all the Photos in Old Mac to Dropbox.
I think I need to download and install another Dropbox App to Old Mac, using the same email and log in, but I can't see the steps to do this so help please.
Can I squeeze in another question? I need to update all the photos in Old Mac - starting with ones taken with my DSLR and finishing with Photos taken with my iPhone.
Can I invent my own search terms, eg, 'Upload all photos in old Mac'?
Looking forward to your reply
Thank you so much for your detailed response, Nick! As a first step, I can confirm that you'd need to download and install the Dropbox desktop application to both devices.A Dropbox folder with all of your content will be created there. It would sync the old device with the new device, and the website.All you have to do on your end in order to backup content, is copy or move files and folders into that folder. If you need to get to know more about Dropbox, we're always here, and I'd also suggest this helpful start-up guide.
