Where are my Camera Uploads?

« Back to Help Center

The Camera Upload feature uploads photos and videos to the Camera Uploads folder in your Dropbox and names them with the date and time they were taken. You'll also be able to view any pictures uploaded with Camera Upload by going to the Photos page in your account online.

Dropbox will not delete files from your mobile device after they are uploaded. The files on your camera, phone, tablet, or SD Card will remain on your device until you remove them manually.

Dropbox for Business users

If you used Camera Upload in Dropbox for Business prior to April 9, 2014, any existing photos or videos previously uploaded using this feature will remain in your work Dropbox. Going forward, Camera Upload will only be supported in your personal Dropbox. Instead of using Camera Upload in Dropbox for Business, you can individually select which files you'd like to upload from your mobile device. This allows you to avoid mixing personal and work files.

Additionally, your Photos page on the website will only show the photos stored in your personal Dropbox. Learn more about how photos are handled in Dropbox for Business.
