Prevent Dropbox From Auto Downloading From My Thumb Drive

Prevent Dropbox From Auto Downloading From My Thumb Drive

How do I stop Dropbox from automatically downloading photos from my thumb drive when I plug it into the USB on my laptop to do some file transfers. I have photos on the thumb drive that I do not want to be download.

You can disable it either for every device by turning off Camera Uploads by following https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/photos/camera-uploads-overview OR you can simply X the USB drives name off the list on that screen to stop it
