Hi all,

I should need to copy my google drive into dropbox, and I have to do it via scheduled batch job.

Is there a way to write a (hope simple) script?

thank you!

Dropbox does offer the ability to upload files programmatically. You can use /2/files/upload to do so:

Or, for large files, you'll need to use upload sessions:

Alternatively, if you can get Internet-access URLs for the files, you can use /2/files/save_url instead:

Those are links to the documentation for the HTTPS endpoints themselves, but we recommend using one of the official SDKs if possible:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation

Those have corresponding native methods for the HTTPS endpoints.

Each endpoint has a curl example in the documentation (in the links in my previous post). I recommend reviewing those and translating them for your platform as necessary.

The API v2 Explorer may also be useful in this regard:

The SDKs each also have some examples included.
