The Photos page is a special page that shows all of the images throughout your entire Dropbox account. There's no way to disable this or exclude folders from being included.

Hey @ncole, thanks for reaching out to us.

 

Can you clarify what you mean a bit more? 

 

Which platform are you referring to? Are you perhaps talking about the Home tab on the Dropbox mobile app?

 

Any additional info or screenshots explaining your issue, would be really helpful.

 

Thanks!

Hi Hannah, I'm on an M1 Mac, using Ventura.  I'm using Dropbox 'Backup' for an external drive only. However, the files from the external hard drive that are uploaded to Dropbox are being perused by Dropbox. Any and all images from those files are also now showing in the 'Photos' area.  Although I do have Photos on this computer, the 'Pictures Folder' is empty, so no pictures are being uploaded from my main drive. I had already previously stopped Dropbox from having access to any part of the main computer (which has caused serious conflicts by itself.)
