Hi there,

After having enabled Instant Upload in the ZyXEL Drive App on my iPhone, the function at first didn't seem to work, as it kept pausing itself. I wondered that I could not see the automatically chosen folder "Photo Backup" in the folder overview, so I tried to figure out, if I could choose another folder, but this doesn't seem possible? Then I tried to create a new folder with the name "Photo Backup", but got a message saying that the path had already been taken.

In the NAS' file explorer on my laptop I can now see a folder named "Photo Backup", however when double clicking it, I get a message saying that the folder does not exist and cannot be accessed. When accessing the NAS through the webbrowser, I also cannot see the folder (like on the iPhone).

I have a NAS326 and everything else in the app seems to work correctly. I can also upload photos from the phone to other folders on the NAS.

Did someone else experience this problem? And is there any way I can delete the "non-existing" folder?

Thank you for your help!
Best regards,
Adele

    Can you see this folder in the Control Panel on your PC? Try to delete it in here.

    Thanks for the screenshot @workinto, I didn't know I could manage the folders in there, but now I successfully deleted the lost folder and created a new one with the same name (this time through the control panel, not through the phone), and it seems to work as it should - no more problems with instant upload either :-)

    Thank you for your reply as well, @Mijzelf, though I didn't try out that solution, since the other one worked.

    Hi - I have related question… I need to back-up photos from 2 or 3 different iPhones… So I would like to have separate folder for each on ZyXEL NAS. However I see that only 1 folder is automatically created (Photo Backup). I see no option for creataing other one… With different name… Is that any solution for that?
