Waiting to upload files (from 9 second videos to 10 min long videos)

New member | Level 2

I am trying to upload all my photos and videos from a recent concert to dropbox via my iphone, then I plan on downloading them from dropbox to my pc. I used the 30 day business free trial for more storage. None of them seem to be uploading, and I am not sure wether its because of the length or file size of the videos or something else. I can't really provide any screenshots as my phone storage is literally full.

If the storage is full that could be the issue because Dropbox needs space to move things in and out of its cache folder. 

Do you have a computer available? If you install Dropbox on to that and connect it then it will use the Camera Uploads function to download them off the device via USB.
