Note. If your internet connection is interrupted, uploads will automatically continue once your connection is re-established.

By default, all the photos and videos detected on your mobile device will be uploaded to the automatically-created “Camera Uploads” folder. All the files in your folder will be named according to the date and time they were taken. You can manage your photographs on your mobile device or on the Disk page in image viewer.
