Camera Upload sync uploads all photos every time

New member | Level 2

I'm using an iphone 6 and a Macbook to sync. although I don't always get the prompt to sync when I plug my phone into my computer.

But when I choose the Camera Upload sync in the dropbox app on my phone, it seems to go through and upload ALL of the photos on my phone automatically EVERY time - which takes ages and is annoying. (currently taken 1 hour for 1.6bg of 4.5gb and still has 1465photos to go!) 

How can I make it so it only updates photos/videos since the last time it updated?

That shouldnt happen.... you dont have anything on your computer which would be deleting hidden and temporary files do you?
