iOS: share/action extension

Hi! Is there any functional difference between the share extension ("Copy to Dropbox" in the upper tray) and the action extension ("Save to Dropbox" in the lower tray) in the iOS share sheet?

Thanks in advance for any answers!

Hey there @JacobSLR, as you may have found, the options Copy to and Save to are essentially the same. 
 
One difference though may not be in the functionality, but how often the Copy to appears as an option. For example, you may find that for some files or photos, only the Save to option shows up - although this is OS-based.
 
I hope this helped to some extent!
