Hi fred

I did I think a while ago but forgot to announce at the end of this thread Embarassed ... assuming we are talking about the needed script update for curl and the fix for name spaces.

If its something else let me know.... my befuddled brain is a bit distracted at the moment.

Ah, sorry Mike, I assumed that you'd announce it and I forgot to look at first post. Embarassed

Hi. Slightly embarrassing problem here. I managed to get your program installed, but when I get to the part where I'm supposed to input the access token, I can't copy and paste it: Ctrl+V and Ctrl+Shift+V just make a ^ symbol appear.

The obvious workaround would seem to be running "dropbox_uploader.sh" in LXTerminal, but I have no idea where to find it in /root.

Ah yes... paste with middle mouse button OR shift insert might work for you.

Seems my notifications have stopped again and my newly created email address is banned.. very odd.
So I may take a while to respond.

Shift + Insert did the trick. Much obliged.

This is great!

I agree with the above poster that cut/paste instructions in the help section might be handy for those who don't normally touch a terminal

ALSO: This is just what I was looking for, and actually ADDS functionality to dropbox. I was looking for an easy way to download my entire dropbox to an external harddrive.
DB actually recommends against this, since disconnecting a harddrive can break synchronization and result in loss of files. They suggest downloading everything to an Internal HD first, and then copying to an external HD.
But my internal HD isn't big enough--I felt stuck!

But this allows a simple download to an external HD without the middle steps. And no auto synchronization (I suspect) means that this can't corrupt the web-stored files.

As such, I see this as handy to use in addition to, not as substitute for regular DB, which I plan to continue using for regular synchronization of more select files

Package this as a standalone and market to the masses?
(maybe this already exists but I didn't see it)

PostPosted: Tue 14 May 2019, 07:40    Post subject: unexpected selective sync  

Noticed one quirk, related to selective sync

On most of my computers I use the "selective sync" dropbox option, which allows me to choose which folders I want to have downloaded to my computer. This allows to have large files/directories only on DB cloud storage that are not filling up local drive on computer's small HD.

last night I used Computer A to upload files to DB using the filemanager.

On Computers B and C these files were automatically added to the list of directories for selective sync, and downloaded.
-When I look at the selective sync control, under settings, they appear with "check boxes" next to them that I did not add.

Any way to prevent this?

Hmm I am assuming the default behaviour is to include newly added files to be synced.

I understand what you would like to happen and there may be a switch with the upload api but I do not know off the top of my head... one I will look into.

No notifications again Sad

And yes a handy tool... its just a couple of bash scripts in essence. I also made a similar functioning web interface with again simplicity in mind.

As for cut and paste help that's a good idea.

Watch this (vacant) space
