Re: How to get last modified date for folders in Dropbox V2 API ?


If you're using Python, we recommend using the official Dropbox API v2 Python SDK

With that, you can retrieve and check the FileMetadata objects for files to see when they were last uploaded/modified. Specifically, the FileMetadata.server_modified field contains the datetime of the latest change to the file. 

You can retrieve FileMetadata objects from a number of different methods, such as files_get_metadata, or files_list_folder/files_list_folder_continue.

You can download files using files_download.
