Busybox is a single utility that contains the functionality of many of the basic Unix tools. It's used on most embedded-Linux systems instead of having separate executables for each utility, which wastes space owing to code duplication. There are several Busybox installers available on Google Play, and one on F-Droid. Custom ROMs often have Busybox built-in....

A programming editor might solve your issue. Take a look at e.g. 920 Text Editor or DroidEdit: 920 Text Editor and DroidEdit (Source: Google Play; click images for larger variants) Both support at least syntax highlighting for several programming languages, and from the screenshot at least DroidEdit seems to be able to directly work with Dropbox (see the ...

Currently the official Dropbox app doesn't support automatic camera upload if you have charge less than 30%. You can do it manually though or through a browser. Only 3rd party apps like DropSync can upload when it is at low charge.

I don't think the built-in PDF support can be disabled. I would suggest exporting and downloading the file instead, so that you can open it with and PDF reader of your choice.

As already answered, what you find in this folder are logs for events or crashes of the Android system. You could open those with a text editor and try to figure things out. All can be safely deleted, but the directory will get populated again as time goes by. settings put global dropbox_max_files 9 If you are rooted (or via adb shell - thanks @Irfan Latif)...

Open the Dropbox app on your device Open the overflow menu (three vertical dots) and choose "Settings" Under "CAMERA UPLOAD" tap "Turn off Camera Upload" If you've installed Dropbox's Carousel app, it takes over the upload of photos. Open the Carousel app Click the weird smiley face in the upper left; this opens the "Settings" menu Uncheck "Backup photos &...

If your phone has a menu hard key, like most Samsung phones, the three-dots icon for an overflow menu won't appear. Press the menu key instead, and Settings is the bottom item on the menu.

I don't know of a way to cause the DropBox app to do it, but if you use DropSync (an third-party app that syncs Android<->DropBox), you can control the sync vs. battery behavior.

Go to apps and start dropbox. From the hamburg menu select settings (the wheel icon). Scrolldown until you see "upload when". Select and slide to when the charge is greater than ... whatever value, 5%. That should do.

If you've tried to clear it from the apps settings for Dropbox and Google Drive, you'll find there are no defaults set, because the default is set with the app that opens the file, not the app you open it from. From Apps in the device settings, go to Office Suite Pro's settings, and click Clear defaults there.

Differential sync or Delta sync is a feature that is available only on the PC version and not on Android as explained in Dropbox help pages Delta sync for Android Power:....Delta sync means you have to carry out hashing operations on the file, which on pretty much all mobile devices is a non-power optimised operation....

Use Firefox. To support saving the wiki, install the "TiddlyFox" Firefox addon. I tested this works today. Also it could directly open an .html file with Firefox in file explorer like "ES File Explorer". Remark: Seems TiddlyWiki v5 displays better than v2.8.1 on Android.

PowerAmp seems to be able to scan the file system automatically. At least when I opened it, all my offline available sound files (regardless of format, I have many WAV and M4A files) were playable, while the solution with RescanMedia (amongst others) didn't work. The Android version is 5.0.1. Dropbox and PowerAmp are from 12/13/2015. It costs 4 Euros (there ...

For Dropbox and OfficeSuite (if you edit from the recent files), they seem to sync. I'm not sure with other apps. In any case, if you need a two-way sync, you can always use DropSpace. See this similar question: How do I sync with DropBox?

As stated already, one solution would be to use an app that lets you synchronize with dropbox. I personally already used Dropsync. It works flawlessly, however, the free version only lets you sync one main folder. So that was not really an option. The solution I just came up with is making good use of the Tasker app yet again. tell Tasker if the camera or ...

As answered here, you can use file explorers such as ES file explorer to achieve this functionality.

The menu for each file (the one you get by clicking the down-triangle-in-ring icon, or by long-tapping a file) should also have a Move item between Rename and Export. Clicking it brings up a selector you can use to select where to move it to. I can't imagine why you might not have that item.

I found a good web application to view and edit markdown-formatted files - StackEdit. You can integrate it with Dropbox and Google Drive and use it to open any of your text files. It doesn't matter if were .md, .txt, or something else.

One way is to use another app to manage your dropbox that enables this functionality. I use Astro File Manager to generally manage the files on my device and this can also link directly to your Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, etc. Astro gives you the additional option to "Open As", from which you can choose Text, Audio, Image or Video. Select "Text" and ...

How about using a third party file explorer, such as ES File Explorer? It allows you to select a way to open a file. If it finds an unknown extension, it asks you to open the file as text/audio/video.

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. Google+ Auto-Backup Copy Carbonite Mobile BitTorrent® Sync more...

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 ...

Change the password on DropBox straight away. Then move the photos into a folder in case anyone gets in touch. Make sure that your new password is a strong one and not easily guessed. Then let DropBox know what happened and what you've done.

In Dropbox, next to your file.pdf there is an arrow button (on the right), click on it and a menu will appear with options : Share, Add to favorites, Delete and More. Click on More and then it will display the options : Rename, Move, Open with and Export. Click on Open with and just select the application you want your file.pdf to open with.
