I often need the following function: I wish to make a copy operation (usually from my phone to the cloud). I wish to copy a set of folders and subfolders with contents/files.
I wish all NEW files to be copied but NO FILES SHOULD BE REPLACED in the target.
One reson for doing this is that earlier backups in the cloud are incomplete. Copying to the cloud can consume a lot of time and bandwidth, I therefore wish to skip overwriting files that are already in the cloud. I wish to only copy NEW files that not yet reside in the cloud.
It would be like pressing "overwrite" for every duplicate folder but "skip" for every duplicate file, in a copy dialogue.
I have tried the app ES File Explorer. It handles all clouds relevant to me (Dropbox, Drive, Mega, OneDrive) in an efficient way. But I can not find the function described above. Files and folders are treated in the same way regarding overwrite/skip.
An example could be:
I make a backup of 1000 files to the cloud. The connection breaks after 900 files. I am not sure which 100 files still have to be copied.
I just want to restart the 1000 file backup and only the missing 100 files should be copied. This should work no matter in which folders/subfolders the missing files are located.
It is very simple to do manually. (Dilbert's boss could do it. ;) ) Just press "overwrite" for duplicate folders and "skip" for duplicate files. But I can't sit and do that for hours. There ought to be a file manager that does it for me?
