i uploaded 800 files but it seems that there is an error with uploading 30 of them and i cant decide them because they are scattered
so when i reupload all 800 file it seems to overwrite them and it take long time...
what is your recommendations
Let's see what we can find!
First off, you are right. When you upload a file to the website on a location that has another file with the same name, the new file will replace it.
You can upload the same batch and let the files be replaced (if you didn't make any changes to them) or find which ones were missing.
However, I do understand that doing this may be cumbersome, so I'd recommend doing this throuh the Dropbox folder if you have the desktop app installed, just as @Elixir also mentions.
By doing this, if you add a file with the same name as an existing one, your computer should notify you that there's a file already with that name and give you some options - such as "x, y, and z files already exist, do you want to replace or skip".
I hope this helps, but let us know if you have any other questions!

i found this steps but i can't find the "file settings" in the first step
Setting Options for the Dropbox To Set Dropbox Options
NOTE: If you select this option, the file will not be received in your Online File Folder dropbox. The sender will receive a notice that the file was not received.
From where did you find those instructions? Are you trying to upload the files directly on the Dropbox.com web? Or you are using some third party services?
If you upload files via web browser, dropbox cannot compare before hand (before uploading again) the files in your computer with the ones already in its server. So, it needs to upload the files to its server first, and then if it finds the file is already exits, it overwrites. If you install the Desktop client, it takes care of this issue.
