How to Stop a Dropbox Upload on an iPad?

Dropbox allows you to upload photos and videos to your account automatically. But the Dropbox app does not have a "Cancel" button to cancel an active upload. So, If you want to stop any active upload, then you can disable Cellular data and Wi-Fi Connection located in the iPad's Settings app. You can disable automatic photo and video uploads via Settings screen located in Dropbox app.

Turn OFF Cellular Data and Wi-Fi:

  1. Tap "Settings" on your iPad.
  2. To turn Off "Cellular Data", tap "Cellular" and move the slider from right to left to turn Off "Cellular Data" connectivity. Now all your active uploads will now be stoped.
  3. To turn Off "Wi-Fi" Connection, tap "Wi-Fi" button and move the slider from right to left to turn Off "Wi-Fi" uploads.

Turn OFF Automatic Photo and Video Uploads:

  1. Open "Dropbox" app on your iPad.
  2. Tap "Menu" icon.
  3. Tap "Settings" icon.
  4. Tap "Camera Upload".
  5. Move slider from right to left to turn Off "Camera Upload" option.
  6. This way you can stop a Dropbox upload on an iPad.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
