Re: Dropbox App backup view icon

Viewing backup files on mobile app

Go to solution

Hi, all! I have some old flash drives that I just backed up on my MACBOOK. They appear in DropBox Backups. I can’t figure out how to view the backups in my mobile app. I can see the file names in my mobile app. But, when I click on them, it simply takes me to the general list (camera uploads, documents, etc.) TIA!

FYI I've converted the concept proposed by mbriney and jarrod kile into an "idea" which can be upvoted here:


Strongly agree with this complaint about the new dropbox backup.
