I am looking for some help with orchestrating downloads from Dropbox to a local filesystem. I have essentially built a file-transfer application which will allow our users to upload large files from Dropbox to our system.
If I have the oauth2 token AND the temporary link, is there a way I can "convert" that to a path which I can use which does not have the time constraint? I'd love to be able to continue using the Chooser, and reverse-engineer the path in the user's Dropbox (to which I will have full access). Is this remotely possible?
That will give you a non-expiring link from which you can directly download the file content.
Things to be aware of however: - these preview links don't expire but can still be revoked at any time by the user - these preview links will be listed in the user's shared links on https://www.dropbox.com/links
