DropSpace


* You can find 'Plugin for Tasker' here: http://goo.gl/lp1mI


This is an application for backing up files on sdcard through Dropbox.

You can choose any files/directories on your sdcard to be synced with remote directories on Dropbox.


Sync can be started immediately with included widget button,

and can also be scheduled by the time and days of week you want.



*** current limitation:
Only files existing on the sdcard are synced.
That is, it's not a full 2-way sync.
This is due to the ambiguity of locally deleted files and new remote files.

*** if 'Sync in progress' appears and nothing happens:
Check if there is a 'dropspace-synclock' file on the root of your sd card.
If something goes wrong while syncing,
(eg. crash, network connection loss, or task manager terminated the process accidentally)
this file will not be deleted automatically and will prevent further syncing.
Just delete it, or reboot the device.

Mixed feelings. Would be nice if you could simply ignore your /dropbox folder on sd card--then it could sync your Dropbox folders, too (without being able to ignore /dropbox on SD card, it includes it in upload path, e.g. My Dropbox/dropbox/Photos, instead of uploading to My Dropbox/Photos). Also rather clumsy functionality. Valiant effort, but I'm going with Dropsync Pro.

Great, but really need way to exclude certain subdirectories, skip invisible (.*) directories. Or exclude with GREP pattern.

Still no external sd card This app will only sync the emulated internal sd card. There's no option to browse to the actual sd card. A pity, as the overall idea is what I'm looking for, but it's still missing much-needed functionality in order to be properly useful. Add the ability to use the actual sd card, and it'll get 5 stars.

3 things 1: This is one of the few Droppbox sync apps that works for me (a lot of the others frequently get stuck syncing). This is, of course, vital. 2: If a file is deleted remotely and later updated locally, it is not recreated remotely when syncing (It says "preserving remotely deleted local file" but does not upload the updated file). Need more syncing options. 3: The "Manage sync list" UI is confusing, it is not clear what local folder pairs with what Dropbox folder.I'm tempted to manage sync pairs directly from SQLite (but am too coward for that). But hey, it's free.
