I miss Carousel!

New member | Level 1
New member | Level 1

I had no problems at all with Carousel but now it's discontinued! So now when I need to upload my pictures into Dropbox, it keeps pausing. I have to stay on it constantly to keep it going. If I have a lot of pictures, it's too time consuming to stay after it. Why did you guys discontinue it?? It was a wonderful app!

 Any chance Carousel of being brought back as an option? This is one of the biggest reasons I chose this as a storage 'cloud' for my pix!!

How about at least bringing some of the Carousel functionality into the normal Dropbox App? such as deleting already synced files? That was AWESOME in Carousel. Because otherwise you constantly keep running out of space. And deleting stuff manually just seems so dangerous.

Also the upload in the Dropbox app stops prematurely compared to carousel that would upload quicker and didn't pause like three seconds after you closed the app.

That's the plan, though they've not released a time frame on when that will happen (and they never do).

Is there anyway to get my photos and videos back from carousel now? I have seemed to have missed the window. If anyone knows a way please let me know.

Carousel was just a different way of viewing your files that are stored at www.dropbox.com/home 

So, to get them just go there and navigate to the folders they are in.

Me too! I did a lot of videoing at a Hen Do, then 2 weddings. Over a month later it's still uploading. Until it's finished uploading everything I can't free up any space in my photo roll. Carousel was brilliant in that it knew what had been uploaded already & so you could delete those. It was SO shortsighted of them to duscintinue something so useful. It makes no sense.
