Camera uploads should be able to upload from any location on my phone.

Camera uploads should be able to upload from any location on my phone.

The camera uploads feature doesn't back up all my photos on Android. Unlike the Onedrive app that can back up photos from all over the phone. Wish this could get fixed. For instance, files saved from sms or downloads folders don't get backed up by DB.

There isnt anything to actually fix - what you are seeing is the intended action.

I'll move your post over to the Feature Requests area, however (https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Share-an-idea/ct-p/101002000)

Please make the location from which Dropbox uploads images and videos user configurable. My Sony Alpha a6000 stores mp4 files in a folder named PRIVATE and not the usual DCIM folder. Dropbox does not recognize this folder and thus does not upload the files. This defeats the usually smooth and automatic upload process. I just bought this camera and it is a major issue to me - to the extent that I may have to look for another upload and storage solution. This is probably a problem for many other customers as the Sony Alpha line is very popular. - Thanks

This idea is going to need a bit more support.

We've updated the status to encourage more users to back you up!

It would be great if Dropbox could sync Camera Uploads and iPhone album so that if you delete a photo or video in your iPhone album it deletes in Dropbox too or vice versa. Currently users have to manage photos and videos in their iPhone and then also in Dropbox.

As the subject idea:
Add option to choose other file location on phone to automatically sync
This would greatly improve the app's ability to sync more than just photos on any smartphone.

Please make it so we can change the camera upload location
