How to define a certain user folder in Android as (only) auto-sync folder?

How to define a certain user folder in Android as (only) auto-sync folder?

Assume I installed DropBox App on my Android SmartPhone.

How do I define that only files (and sub-folders) in

\data\mysyncfolder\

should automatically be synced with remote DropBox storage?

All others NOT!

Hi again, @pstein!

The Dropbox mobile app is primarily for previewing files already on your Dropbox account, and for automatically uploading images via camera uploads.

It isn't a syncing app like the desktop version, so it wouldn’t be possible for files to be synced from the Android to Dropbox directly in the mobile app. You can only upload files manually in the app.

However, there should be some other app or service that can link to your Dropbox account to perform the same function you’re looking for straight from your Android.

Let me know if this helps!
