rename all files in a few clicks

rename all files in a few clicks

For a few days ago the name of the files was jjjj-mm-dd and then the time.

Now that is changed to: Foto dd.mm.jj and then time.

I don't like that, because I want organise my files chronologically.

Please can you give information how I can ga back to the old filename system?

The only time Dropbox renames files is when uploading photos. When done through the automatic Camera Uploads feature, it uses the naming convention of YYYY-MM-DD hh.mm.ss. When done with a manual upload (i.e. by tapping the + in the Dropbox mobile app), it uses Photo Mmm DD, hh mm ss. When uploading manually you can chose to name the file yourself. Otherwise there are no settings to control this.
