My current workflow is to snap pics on my Droid, plug it in via USB, and sync the pics. I'd like to just run a script to sync the DCIM folder with a shared network drive, if anyone knows of a way that I can do this?

I can connect to the share with a file explorer app, but copying the files is even more awkward that way than plugging in the USB. The tech is there, I'm just wondering if there's a simple one-touch solution.

  • I asked this question regarding the easiest way to push pictures to a photo site. You may want to use your network drive in the end but if not, I recommend PicPush. Once you set it up, snap a picture and it's uploaded automatically. It's zero-touch. ;)

Try Image Transfer.

  • Looks good. Reviews mention a free version, but I can't see that anywhere. Anyone know if there is a free/lite version to try it out? Otherwise I guess I'll take the plunge and rely on the Market's 24hr money back.

Upload 2 NAS can do this, and there is also a lite version. I haven't actually used this but it's on my list to try.

  • I can see uses for scheduled batch upload, interesting find. Nov 24 '10 at 5:16
  • Had a play with Upload 2 NAS, but it only seems to be able to upload to FTP servers, not shared folders.

I would always go for rsync

if your phone is not rooted you could use rsync4android (which is free) https://market.android.com/details?id=eu.kowalczuk.rsync4android

if your phone is rooted you could offcourse also use the above but if you need more advance stuff I would combine BTEP (Better Terminal Emulator Pro, not free) which has a cli ssh client which can be called from SL4A (scripting engine usefull for BASH scripts, which is free)
