Uploading Lots of photos How do I add the one's which didn't upload?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi

I started using dropbox yesterday and I'm still trying to get my head around it all.

i uploaded 736 photos and videos yesterday however 146 of these had errors?? How do I go about retrying these?? Do I have to go into each individual file and retry?!?! There must be an easier way surely?

Also which is the easiest way to upload images from my computer to dropbox and my phone to dropbox?

Thanks

Heidi

Hello Heidi @joeycrocks

Welcome to our Community. Good question!  

Where did you perform this upload from? Your phone or computer? 

If possible, please share a screenshot of the failed uploading status you are seeing (if you are still seeing it). If the error gives you file names, you can use the list to know which files you need to re-upload. 

The best way to upload photos, folders or anything else, is the Dropbox desktop application. In your local Dropbox folder, each file has a syncing icon. So if you opened the folder with your photos, the photos that for some reason failed to sync would have a red x while the successfully synced files would have a  and the files still updating/syncing a .  This makes things pretty straight forward. 

I hope this info helps. Waiting for your response to further assist. 

Thank you Heidi!
