Yes, have it open and can get to Preferences option there. Have selected what looks like the option to turn off camera uploads.

 

Just connected phone to laptop, and it has not tried to start the upload. So I think that's fixed it.

 

Thanks for your help Walter.

Hi @DamianCarr; welcome to our Community and sorry for the late response. 

You should be able to disable the camera uploads feature through the app's preferences.

Let me know if you have any more questions!

Hi Walter

 

Thanks for your response. But I don't even see a Preferences option.

Can you look for the Dropbox icon in your system tray, Damian?

Hey @chrislimys, thanks for the nudge here!

Did you turn camera uploads off from the Dropbox desktop app's preferences?

If you did and you're still seeing that photos get uploaded when you plug your phone in to your computer, can you describe the steps you followed, to make sure we didn't miss anything?

Thanks!
