How to get only new documents in folder uploaded, and not copied over each time by Dropbox??????

New member | Level 2

Each time I start a chat with tech people the chat disappears.  SO --- how do I prevent DropBox from recopying over every single document in a file each time I update?  I only want the newest files added, and not have to wait an hours for it to recopy each older file in the folder?

Hey there @djj723,

If you're uploading files via the website then you can just upload the individual files instead of the whole folder. 

Otherwise, if you're using the desktop app, it will only sync new additions to the folder and just index the files within the Dropbox folder for any changes.

If this doesn't quite hit the mark then please give me a bit more detail of the exact steps you're taking.

Thanks!
