Can I move my Camera Uploads folder to another location?

New member | Level 2

I would like to move my Camera Uploads folder to a lower tier of my Dropbox folder. May I do that without disabling syncing? Or does the Camera Uploads folder need to be located at the root level of Dropbox? What do I do if, after making such a move, I find that I have two Camera Uploads folders, one at the root and the other where I had moved it. Is there a way to merge them at the proper tier with syncing on?

Thank you very much for your help.

@whistler49, according to the below linked solved post, this is not possible, which was what I was thinking also. That is a Dropbox backend default and isn't possible unless that feature is added.

Just to confirm what @gregoc said, no, it isnt possible to move the Camera Uploads folder I'm afraid.
