Hi @Farrell Martinez, thanks for posting on the Community!

 

If you're using the Dropbox mobile app, any files you upload via the app appear on the site. Since the mobile app is primarily for uploading and previewing files, it doesn't directly sync like with the desktop app.

 

If you want to delete files on your phone, for instance, the camera roll, you can do so without affecting the files on Dropbox.

 

All you need to keep in mind is to not do any deletions via the Dropbox mobile app (or the iOS Files app if you're on an iOS device).

 

Hope this helps to clarify matters!
