I'm using many apps that store their files locally, and they're taking too much space, I can sync their files to dropbox and delete them manually from my phone but I'm asking if I could do it automatically, two exemples :

A voice recorder that store records in /sdcard/records

A call recorder doing the same thing in /sdcards/calls

The question is how can I automatically upload a folder's content to dropbox and delete this content from my android device on certain times ?

  • For uploading a file to dropbox, there seems to be many examples available on web (this one is for tasker). Same goes for automatic deletion of a file. I also have an answer for the latter. Try few things, then let us know the result.

There are apps like FolderSync, which do exactly what you want for multiple cloud storage providers.

Basically, you configure a folderpair to upload to Dropbox and delete the source files after syncing (see image).

I'm not sure if this is a premium-only feature (I bought the pro version), but I feel like this should be in the free version as well.
