camera upload counter keeps increasing

New member | Level 2

I'm trying to upload photos from a trip. When I started, the red button indicated I had around 1750 photos. I uploaded a few hundred photos with no problem, then had to move away from wifi, so the upload stopped. Now, I'm trying to upload the rest of them, and it seems like the photos are being uploaded, but instead of decreasing, the number of photos remaining ot be uploaded keeps increasing. I've been uploading photos for hours and every time a photo uploads, the number in the red button goes up by one or two. 

Any idea what could be causing this?

Hi there @missquiss
Hmm. thinking face Although I can’t exactly pin-point why you may be experiencing this behavior, I’d recommend giving it some time to finish uploading all the relevant photos in your Camera Roll. 
If you find that the upload isn’t completing or you’re having persisting trouble with this, please don’t hesitate to get back to me. 
Let me know of any updates!
