Auto uploads aren't working.

Auto uploads aren't working.

Why are my camera uploads sometimes delayed? E.g., my uploads from today have not appeared. And yes, I've enabled uploads on my mobile app. They're always slow, and this has happened before, and I don't know how to fix it. I just wait - I'm trying to get my photos on my windows 10 pc - or email them to myself, but that's a lot of fuss when auto-upload is supposed to make it happen. ??? Thanks.

Hi @Rgilinsky, thanks for posting today!

 

Are you on an Android or iOS device? What settings have you enabled in the camera uploads section of the mobile app? Are you currently on a WiFi network when waiting for the files to upload?

 

Any info you could provide would be helpful!

Android.  It's a Galaxy S9+.  I have set auto upload which has been that way since I got the phone 2 years ago.  I aways experience hours-delayed upload.  My photos get there, but shouldn't it be pretty much immediate?  I'm on an 80 mbs wifi and internet connection.  No reason for the slow response.  It's been like that for a long time.  I haven't changed the settings in 2 years.

Thanks.

 

P.S. I posted a response a couple of days ago.  This is a repeat.  What happened to my first reply, dontcha wonder?

I upgraded to 2 Tb on Dropbox about 2 weeks ago.  I have been uploading all of my photos from my Windows Picture program.  I thought I was all set and today a bunch of old photos began uploading again.  They are all photos I already have in my folders.
