Will dropbox upload missing files from a batch upload

Level 2
If I batch upload files and some already were previously uploaded, dropbox asks if I want to replace them. If I say no, does dropbox still add the remaining files that haven't been uploaded or is the entire batch skipped?

Re: Will dropbox upload missing files from a batch upload

Hi there, @Loveislife . 
From what I understanding, you’re adding your files through the desktop app. Please note that the Dropbox folder is just like any other folder on your computer, which means that, in general, any action you carry out with other folders on your device is the same for the Dropbox folder as well. 
The options given means that you can select to replace or skip files that are already in the specific folder path, but the other files should still upload in your Dropbox folder as per normal. 
Let me know if you have any other questions!
