Pause Uploading Folder?

Pause Uploading Folder?

Hi all, I've been uploading a large folder with about 5000 files. There's about 1000 left and I need to turn my PC off.

 

Is there anyway to pause it so I can resume when I turn my PC back on?

 

Thanks!!

If you're using the Dropbox app on your computer and you're syncing files in your local Dropbox folder, just turn off the computer. Dropbox will resume where it left off when you turn the computer back on. If you're uploading through the Dropbox website, there's no way to pause and resume an upload.
