Hi everyone. I just copied a lot (more than 75 GB) of old archive photos into my iCloud. Will the Dropbox iPhone app recognize these as new and auto-upload them to my Dropbox? Is there a way to only upload photos taken after a certain date?

Thanks for the quick response Lori!
Yes, the photos are in the camera roll. I'm not seeing an option, is it a premium feature? Just let me know if I'm in the wrong place:
Thanks for the screenshot @jvstinivs.You're right, and apologies for this. It seems this is a feature available only on paid plans.If you're on a Basic plan it wouldn't be accessible.As for the files, if you've placed them in your camera roll then the mobile app should recognize them as new, and upload them automatically. Do you see a different behavior on your end?
Thanks. Yes, it looks like it's finding them and uploading them as new.
No worries - I was basically using it a backup since I like Dropbox's file name format (of the date). I should just commit to one cloud service.
Thanks again for your help!
