Re: How to delete duplicates

Dropboxer
Hey Lawrence (@Lawrencehayden), while there isn’t currently a built-in tool within Dropbox to find duplicates, I’m wondering how the duplication has manifested itself on your end. Are you uploading your photos & videos manually - eg. using the (+) button from your phone- or are you using the Camera Uploads feature? Do the files have the same name/extension/size incidentally? 
 
Kindly note that should you determine that you’ve uploaded the same photos & videos twice accidentally (i.e perhaps to a different folder), you could easily delete the ones you don’t need following the steps outlined here
 
I hope that my hint above is-even slightly- helpful in accomplishing the task at hand & please let me know on this discussion in case you have more questions about any of the above. Wishing you a wonderful rest of your day ahead!
