Will tags applied to my files be preserved if I upload them to Dropbox?

New member | Level 2

I have 20,000 tagged photos plus a lot of videos collected over 15 years and now backed up to Norton, but I would like to switch to Dropbox as backup. Can the tags be preserved and used if I save photos and videos to Dropbox? No point in paying Dropbox subscription (currently I use just 7Gb free) if tags going to be lost.

Re: Tags

Hey there @Peter R.51, thanks for reaching out to us here!

 

Can you clarify for me how the tags were added to your files? For example, are the tags added into the metadata of the files?

 

Otherwise, are the tags added through a third party app?

 

Let me know and we can go from there!
