Hi Team
I will upload all 1000 of photos from my iphone to Dropbox then do a factory reset on the iphone once photos are uploaded.

Will the photos on Dropbox then get deleted if I do a factory reset on the device ?

Hi @Abymos63, thanks for messaging the Community!

 

If you upload photos using the Dropbox mobile app, then the files will remain on the site after the reset of the phone.

 

The mobile app isn't like the desktop app, so it won't sync the changes (namely, the deletion of the photos) to the site. Provided the files aren't deleted directly via the mobile app or the site, then your photos will be fine.

 

Hope this helps to clarify matters!
