@Gustavo_CLP If you are using FTP/SFTP to manage your files and use a windows computer, you could look into the popular FTP software WinSCP which offers a fairly simple scripting interface to upload files, there are many tutorials on how to set it up.  Not as easy as dropbox doing it, but, at least you can automate it either by file changes or on a daily basis. 

If you are using Linux or OSX, you can acomplish the same thing with lftp, and writing a standard bash script. Again, if you google you should be able to find some tutorials.

I hope this helps you!
