I'm using the api to save a file to Dropbox from node (meteor). My problem is, if I don't first save to disk (node) but directly to Dropbox, the result is a corrupted file. Otherwise, If I first save to node, read, and then save to DB, the file is saved perfect.
In the client (browser) I receive the file from the user and pass this: file.srcElement.result to server (node).
@smr_software The Dropbox filesUpload method will just upload the data supplied to it, so to follow on what Здравко said, it sounds like the issue is occurring before the Dropbox call. It may have to do with whatever format or encoding the data is in when you get it.
Since this isn't exactly about the Dropbox API itself, I'm afraid I can't offer much help. You may be better suited asking about how to handle data like this in Node/Meteor in a more general forum, such as StackOverflow, or one specific to Node or Meteor. I also recommend adding some logging first to inspect the data through your code to see what is different and where.
Well, yes, I suppose both answers are in a way ansewring the issue. It's not a DB issue but an encoding one. I'll research a little bit about this, or maybe try in another forum, a more general one, like Stackoverflow.
Of course if I find the solutions I'll post it back here.
