Upload Folder - Duplicates

Upload Folder - Duplicates

Explorer | Level 3

I have a work folder that I want to put on my dropbox from my work computer. I did the upload folder and it worked fine. Now a few days later I want to upload the folder again since I changed some files. Will it upload every file or just any that were updated or upload duplicates? I don't want to create a dropbox folder on my work computer to interfere with my personal computer and dropbox at home.

Re: Upload Folder - Duplicates


Hey @mspahis, thanks for posting your question here. 


If you upload the folder through the website and the files have the same names as the already existing ones, the new ones should replace them. 


If anything comes up, just give me another shout and I'll make sure to get back to you as soon as possible.
