Does my account support two-way syncing of my files?

New member | Level 2

Hello, I understand that once I enable camera uploads in my android phone, my photos will upload to the Camera Uploads folder in my Dropbox account. And then I can access those photos and videos using Dropbox on my computer.

My query is does Dropbox basic account supports two-way automatic synchronization of files and folders? As in does it mirror my action- so if I delete photos from my android gallery, will it also delete photos from my Dropbox account upon syncing?

Hi @onlytanmoy,

Short answer: Actually no. crying face

Dropbox mobile versions don't keep in sync permanently any local folders (at least not public). About photos: Dropbox actually 'catch' the shots from your camera and fetch from camera roll, the particular photo, nothing more! Dropbox don't make sync of your gallery.

Hope this cast some light. winking face
