Android - camera uploads progress bar missing

Android - camera uploads progress bar missing

Why is the the upload progress bar is missing on camera uploads? I have no idea if the upload is complete, stuck, still going... no feedback whatsoever, it's just happening in the background.

Not to mention I have to launch the Dropbox app to trigger camera uploads. Poor.

It's all so broken these days.

Samsung S9+ on Android 9.0, all up to date.

Edit: I've found it, in 'Photos'.

 

Having to open Dropbox to start uploads is still the case however.

Have you enabled background uploading by any chance?

Appears to work erratically. I'll keep an eye on it and return if I notice it happening again...

Can we have the answer please? This happens to me all the time. I am uploading video files (complete folder structures) to dropbox. I also lose some files but not others. 

 

Honestly dropbox is more hassle than its worth. I am about to go to another service

Hey @concretekoori, thanks for nudging us on this thread. 

I'd be more than happy to help, I'll just need a bit more info on this; for example:

  • Are you referring to not seeing a progress bar when uploading via the mobile app?
  • Are you uploading your video files manually or with camera uploads?
  • Have you tried connecting to cellular data or a different WiFi network?

Keep me posted!
