Accessing mobile camera uploads from dropbox app on my laptop

Accessing mobile camera uploads from dropbox app on my laptop

I have been using dropbox to back up my photos from my phone for a long while now. I am trying to gain access to those photos from my laptop via the dropbox application. I am logged in to the correct account. I cannot locate the camera upload folder on my laptop. Please advise.

Hi,

If you enabled auto-back up of your photos on your phone then they will be synced to a folder: "Camera Uploads". On your laptop you can find this older inside the main Dropbox folder (See photo below). For some reason if you cannot find this folder then:

1) Check whether you're using the same Dropbox account on your phone and laptop

2) Check whether selective syn is preventing the Camera Uploads folder to appear on your laptop.

How do I check selective syn? The camera uploads still do not show up 😞
