Is there a way to backup all images of my Android, something like Dropbox, but for all images of gallery, not only camera and screenshots? But for monitor other folders, created by other apps too, like 'WhatsApp images' or 'Messenger'.

Thanks in advance.


A very flexible solution for this issue is offered by FolderSync: this app not only allows you to specify which local folders should be synchronized with which remote ones, but also supports a ton of different services, including Dropbox, FTP/SFTP/FTPS, Google Drive/Docs, WebDAV, Ubuntu One, and a bunch of others. I use it myself for Dropbox and SFTP, and am very satisfied (switched to the payed version quite soon after having tried it).

    I'm trying some apps. I already had DropSync, I think FolderSync can do the same thing but with more services. And I think it works the way I want. DropSync is enough to DropBox, but I think for others, I'll need FolderSync. – José Júnior Jan 1 '14 at 3:28
  • Agreed, to my knowledge that's true. But FolderSync also gives you more flexibility than DropSync (e.g. scheduled syncs, Tasker support, and more). // Please don't forget to come back and accept the solution chosen by clicking the checkmark next to the corresponding answer :) – Izzy Jan 1 '14 at 12:33

There are tons of apps that will allow you to backup images to the cloud in addition to Dropbox. Some are more "aggressive" than others.

  • But, these apps, allow me to choose the folders or just camera uploads like Dropbox? Thanks! – José Júnior Dec 31 '13 at 14:41
  • As I said, some are more aggressive about grabbing new images in various places. Except for G+ and Dropbox I haven't spent a lot of time with any of them. You'll probably just want to install and see how it works for you. – ale Dec 31 '13 at 14:45
  • If you want to sync specific folders, take a look at FolderSync. Works with multiple services, including Dropbox. – Izzy Dec 31 '13 at 16:56
  • @Izzy: That seems like it should be an answer. – ale Dec 31 '13 at 17:20
  • OK, done so. Thought it rather an addition to your answer, but it also can do "stand-alone" :) – Izzy Dec 31 '13 at 23:54

There's some options that I found after trying and researching:

  • MyShoeBox: this seems to be the most "dedicated" app for this thing, but there are limitations like the max size of image and resolution (free plans).

  • Cloudii: like FolderSync, but free just for a couple of days, and there's a option to automatically send camera photos, is easy to use.

  • DropSync: does the same, but only for Dropbox, and you can choose which folders, or file type to filter, but just in a excluding way.

  • FlickrUploader: maybe not the best option because of the Flickr terms about usage of the service.

But I think, the most advanced option is FolderSync, the only that can filter files by type (not images only) and features advanced options.
