Uploading Photo Folder

Uploading Photo Folder

New member | Level 2

On my Android, I have my photos sorted by folders. It appears that I am unable to upload the entire folder without having to choose each photo individually (which date back a couple years), it's annoying and very time consuming to scroll...scroll...scroll...

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

Hi there, currently it isn’t possible to upload entire folders via the mobile app.

However, as it’s Android, you could connect the phone to your desktop machine, and then copy the entire folder into your Dropbox folder (assuming the Dropbox desktop application is installed) when it’s mounted as a USB storage device (unless your phone is setup differently).

When the app detects any changes, it will start to sync them to the site automatically, though with 2 years of photos it can take some time!

Hope this helps!
