My HTC One M9 got me 100GB of Drive storage and my Asus Zenpad S got me another 100GB so now i'm sitting at 215GB. I use Autosync for Drive to sync my files across 4 devices. I also use Redirect Pro to move all pictures saved to the internal memory to the SD card. It's really useful to consolidate everything in one location and have a cloud backup.
Because if they collapse all of your folders when your backed up photos are uploaded to Google Photos, then they're redownloaded onto your new phone as a single folder full of thousands of unlabelled pictures. From that moment on, you're permanently locked into using Google Photos exclusively. Unless you want to spend weeks doing nothing but sorting your photos back into folders, if you even remember when and where they were all taken, you'll be fully and irrevocably reliant on the Lens/Photos AI tagging and search to find anything. Even switching to another cloud service provider, if everything's in Photos, would be virtually impossible for someone without unlimited time. Not a problem if you have backups, I myself keep my cloud backup as a mirror image of my well-sorted local storage with an app called Autosync for Google Drive, but most people don't back up their files outside of automatic preconfigured syncing to Google, Microsoft, Samsung, or whatever cloud storage service paid their phone OEM to be a system app.
Samsung international ROMs also have this feature. I have it permanently enabled in my custom ROM, so every incoming call is saved and labeled with the caller's contact info and time stamp. Then AutoSync pushes the files to my Google Drive.
It has saved me so many times when I can't remember a detail someone said or needed a notepad.
I have a OnePlus so it has an inbuilt call recording feature(you might be able to find a third party app though), but after the calls are recorded, I use an app called Autosync for Google drive in which you can select the folders it should upload to the drive and then delete from your phone. It has a lot of settings and options to customize so I have selected it to only upload when the phone is charging AND on Wi-Fi so it doesn't cost me battery/data.
You would use an app named Drive AutoSync to link your local folder to a folder on Google Drive. You can set it up so that the data only moves in one direction, and only updates when manually triggered to do so (which Tasker can do because that app has Tasker integration).
So basically you'd have a Profile in Tasker that triggers when the local folder on the device updates, then links to a Task that runs the sync by have Tasker tell DriveSync to do its thing.
Then you'd use Tasker's Delete File action to delete whichever file(s) locally. As long as you have the options set up properly in DriveSync it shouldn't delete anything there. You may have to pay for the full version of DriveSync though depending on how they currently have the trial version (think it was/is limited to a certain number of MB per sync).
> Ideally every night it would only sync files that changed
There is certainly a way to do this with Tasker, but based on anyone's specific use and specifications - it would have to account for a lot of variable scenarios. It wouldn't exactly be the easiest thing to write/create solely in Tasker.
There is an app called Drivesync/Foldersync that is quite powerful and you can create any backup/mirror scenario you could possibly think of, and trigger the sync via Tasker because the app has Tasker integration built-in.
You'll find this app mentioned many times in this subreddit since it's quick and easy to setup and does its job quite well. Not to discourage you or anyone from writing a whole custom solution using Tasker, but Drivesync works really well :)
AutoSync to Google Drive, is one of many applications available which will allow you to schedule sync/backups to remote cloud services, (you could schedule it to happen during your typical "charging time" to eliminate battery life concerns and have the best of both worlds.
As for other battery saving tips...
...you should not need specific apps to be able to do this, it should be in your settings somewhere.
Save more battery life when using a browser, (any), by....
...these steps will reduce the amount of work your connectivity hardware and CPU has to do which in turn reduces battery drain.
To "win" the battery life "battle", you've gotta fine tune your device so it does as little as possible, as quickly as possible, without negatively impacting your typical usage patterns. The above goes a long way towards that.
You can stop the automatic Google Photo synch and there's an app called Autosync for Google Drive that automatically syncs the folders on your phone you want it to with your Drive.
Basically, hook up Google drive backup and sync on your computer. Then install Autosync for Google drive on your phone. The free version only let's you backup one directory, while the $5 version let's you backup as many as you want. On your pc, set the folders where your save files are stored as the folders you want to backup. Once they're backed up, go onto your Google drive and find where the files are. Star the folder it's inside of. Once that's done, your computer should automatically backup all emulator saves to Google drive, you can make sure this works by saving and checking the time the file was modified.
Witch the pc hooked up, go onto autosync on your phone. Set the local directory as whichever folder your saves are (if there are other files there, set the file name argument as *.sav or *.fileextension depending on the save format) and set the cloud directory as the folder where your saves were stored on your computer. You starred the folder it was inside of earlier to easily get there. Once that's set up, it might take some time to get it working properly, but it should backup your files when either your phone or pc makes a new save game. I have dolphin, Citra, mgba, and drastic synced up this way.
As cool as the feature is, I just use Autosync:
I can manually set up any and all emulators or other games to sync saves.
You can automatically have notes uploaded to drive using drivesync set the backup directory to something like Android/data/com.SteadfastInnovations/cache and all your notes will be uploaded to whatever remote folder you'd like.
For this to work, you'll need to have export to Dropbox/Box on. Only on those backup intervals do the PDFs get generated. Once drivesync detects those changes (you can set it to detect changes, or on time intervals) it will upload your files to Google drive. It's a pretty nice app to have. There are a few others like it as well.
Squid should definitely let you do this automatically. But they don't, so this is the best solution i know of..
If it's important, I probably would entrust the duty of the file/folder mirroring and management itself to the app/plugin Autosync for Google Drive.
Alot of folks here use it, myself included. You can try it for free, but the full version is well worth it.
From Tasker you can trigger the sync based on any conditions you like, static or dynamic, including a certain time, etc.
And...welcome to /r/Tasker!
(KAboom!) you're welcome ;)
I set up a solution between my Nvidia Shield TV and my GPDXD+ using an application called Autosync for Google Drive. I pointed my various save directories to directories which I created on Google Drive. Then, I configured a two-way sync between them.
So now, I can play a game on my GPDXD, go home, and pick up where I left off seamlessly on my Shield TV and vice-versa.
If you change the download location setting in chrome os to save downloads to Google drive rather than local storage, when you log into a new chrome os device you'll immediately have access to every file you "downloaded" on the old device because they were never actually on the device. They were in your Google drive cloud storage.
I've got this setup on my chrome machines and use an app (AutoSync Google Drive) on my Android device which does a similar task: any file I download on my Android phone, the app uploads that file to my Google Drive/downloads folder then deletes the file off my phone. So I can go to any web browser on any machine in the world and access every file I've "downloaded" on my phone, tablet, or Chrome os devices.
Edit - autocorrect incorrectly corrected a word.
I use an app called Autosync for Google Drive. Tons of flexibility, no subscription fee. I'd assume there's something similar for Dropbox.
I use the Pro version of this app:
You can point a folder to your Android save location and a folder in your Google Drive that will sync changes whenever they are detected and/or on a timed interval.
Citra saves may be a bit trickier as they use some weird paths for data files and saves IIRC. But it should still work.
I think the free version of the app only syncs one folder, so you could use it for just Citra if you want, but I use it for all of my emulators.
It's also great for syncing data between different devices.
works great, might need to get the premium version for autobackup if I recall correctly, but it's inexpensive
Does anyone know why they suspended support for Google Drive in Moon+? Seems like a very useful feature.
In the meantime you can use Autosync for Google Drive app to sync Moon+ ebook folder with a folder in your Google Drive.
(Disclosure: I am the author of Autosync for Google Drive)
I did similar to the above. I use google drive and an app called Auto Sync to sync the files between my PC and my mobile, if you plug the phone in you can drag and drop like any file (put it in the music folder). My car doesn't play over bluetooth too well as it's crap at reading the songs but it's fine over USB which I have plugged in. I use Rocket Player to play them all.
If you have an iPhone put them on iTunes on a computer and sync them that way.
There is an Android app called AutoSync that will allow you to sync Google Drive files locally. It works pretty well - you can even set up one or two way syncing. I found this was the best way for syncing a large number of files locally, just remember to set up your local offline folder to be within your Downloads folder.
I back mine up to my Google Drive, using DriveSync which has worked flawlessly for me.
I point it to my Tasker folder, and it syncs everything in it to my Google Drive.
Do you have the latest version of Tasker? If so you may not need that Task/subroutine since Tasker's List Files Action now includes a "Sort By > Date Modified Reverse" which will give you the newest file, and may be a bit faster depending on how many files are in the folder.
Anyways you have a couple main options once you have the filepath to the newest file:
The camera is going to put them somewhere, by preference somewhere that can be found by a file manager, or other app.
If, in the directory where the camera drops the image files, you add a file (it can be zero length) named ".nomedia", many gallery apps will treat that as hidden. Some gallery apps can also be told to ignore a directory (or all but a chosen list).
If that's not enough, perhaps use a camera app that can save "raw" images, they're in a file format that the default Android media framework can't display. Or at least couldn't, "stock Android can't do foo" isn't necessarily a claim that lasts forever.
As for auto-uploading, there are apps that can synchronize a local folder with a cloud one. I use [link]
I think another named Foldersync has many fans.
Look into something like this that automatically detects new files in a particular folder and file extension to auto sync to Google Drive which is reliable and has good throughput. They also have one for One Drive but Microsoft's throughput isn't as good as Google from my experience.
Hmmm, I see what you mean. From what I know, I have to do the same thing as you to use cloud storage; download from website then go from downloads folder to Google Drive.
I don't know much about IFTT or Tasker, but maybe try posting on those subreddits and somebody might be able to give you a script that will do it. /r/tasker and /r/ifttt
I'll try to dig around the internet, see if there's an easy way to that sort of thing. But you might have some luck at those subreddits compared to what I find (if I manage to find anything).
Edit: A search brought up this application: [link] Maybe give that a shot.
If all you want to do is exactly what you said, you don't even need Tasker, although Tasker integrates very well with the app that can accomplish this, should you choose to exert more control over it with Tasker.
The app is called AutoSync for Google Drive. You'd put it on both the devices, and can setup exactly which folders to sync, when to sync them, and whether each device simply downloads, or can upload and download.
In fact, with Drive AutoSync, you wouldn't even have to upload them. Just drop them in the designated local folder, and when Drive AutoSync detects a change has been made to that folder on your phone, will just upload on its own, so that Google Drive's folder mirrors the folder on your phone.
Same for removing files, etc. Of course these are all options that you can configure to your taste.
I use Autosync https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ttxapps.drivesync&hl=cs and never had any problem. Great app.
Well that's straightforward then, use the app called Autosync for Google Drive, It will do exactly what you want and probably more, there are so many options and settings but it's very easy to use, I've been using it for years and never had a problem, you can sync folders 1 way or 2 way and auto delete.
Google drive sync
Hope this helps
Wow, your setup was exactly what I use to do also, I'm so pissed that photos and drive were separated.
Now what I do is have a program run on my phone that syncs to google drive and backs up my photos whenever I plug in my phone. It's called DriveSync and it's 100% worth it. I sync to google drive, use Personal Backup 6 (a free program I also highly recommend, here's that link [link]) to automatically move them out of google drive and into an organized folder on my computer, and a backup drive. Then I have my computer back up to backblaze. So I have 3 copies of my files, actually 4 technically since my phone has a huge micro sd card and I havent had to remove anything from it yet. 3 copies though, computer, backup drive, and the backblaze cloud.
But yeah, DriveSync is 100% worth the price, it has verbose logs too so you can see if it did back up everything and if there were any errors. Here's the link [link] Also I'm in no way affiliated with these programs, just a super happy user of the app ever since google removed photos from drive, and I've been using personal backup since it was like personal backup 5. I think I got recommended it on this very sub.
You can install apps to do it for you. It comes with dropbox support built in, but I just installed [link] for google drive and it worked nicely.
You do need the $5 pro upgrade to upload files > 10MB, if your PDFs are pretty big.
The synced pdfs have all the annotations
Good choice keeping the 3XL to backup
This is the app I use to sync the stuff [link]
I just don't like the punchhole in the middle for some reason, seems distracting 🤷🏻♂️(S20)
Oh too easy. You just need this app. Create a folder on your google drive for your minecraft saves then sync that folder and your games/com.mojang/minecraftWorlds folder. Do that on both your phones and youre set. Just don't load any saves while it's syncing, and keep backups just in case something goes wrong.
How about an app, AutoSync for Google Drive...
Then anything that goes into folder of your choosing in your phone will sync to Google Drive.
This way written by /u/bluestaples works, but isn't as straight forward, and lacks instructions as to how to set this method up.
The easiest way to get your photos back on your device would be to follow the steps below:
This will be used later to download all of your photos/videos that are already uploaded to Google Photos. For this to be able to download the photos from Google Photos, make sure that you have the setting you referred to " I found a workaround on the Google forums saying that you can automatically add photos to Drive, then download them from there, but when I do that, my camera roll on Photos starts showing duplicates for every single photo" enabled.
To do this, you might want to create a separate folder on your phone. You could name it "New copy of photos & videos". After this is done, you have the freedom to delete all of the photos off of Google Photos via the website. (You can click on one photo, scroll down a few times, hold in the "SHIFT" key, and click another photo. This will select the two photos you clicked on, and all the photos in-between. Delete all the photos and videos in Google Photos.
You get to re-enable automatic uploading of your photos and videos!!! Yaaaaaay. This shouldn't take long, especially if you have the free "unlimited storage" option of Google photos enabled.
If you follow these steps, you will be able to have all of your photos back on your phone, for sharing like you did beforehand. It will be just like it was before, and you won't make the same mistake again. :)
sure, here's the repo: [link]
As mentioned, I download the music to my phone via Google Drive Sync
I think it's supposed to automatically sync but it hasn't worked for me, however I use DriveSync which works perfectly, just point it towards the save state folder.
You can use Autosync Google Drive if you want, the free version let's you synce one folder between phone - google drive, it's a great app.
This is the closest that I know of - I use the DropBox equivalent, but it should work the same. It allows arbitrary mapping of directories, including full one-way and two-way sync.
Yeah, I found the save files in the Android folder, and used this app to sync it with Google Drive:
But it kept syncing every so often as if the files were changing... I'm not sure why it did this, as I wasn't playing the game or having it run in the background.
Not sure why this was happening, but I might try again eventually.
It's perhaps roundabout, but if you have enough local storage to keep a copy of an entire audiobook on your phone when you want to listen to it, and you have fast+unlimited Internet, you can use DriveSync to easily batch copy entire audiobooks to and from Google Drive, and then use whatever audiobook player you like.
you can use something like google drive or dropbox to sync the files, on desktop you can download google drive and theres also an app for android [link]
Just use <strong>Drive AutoSync</strong>.
I use it daily. Tons of mirroring options, and the syncs can be scheduled, or - triggered by Tasker since it comes with Tasker integration :)
I use "AutoSync For Google Drive" all the time. Works great.
Just to sync once a week wouldn't even need Tasker to initiate it, but if you wanted to do it that way, the app has Tasker integration so you can initiate the desired sync whenever you'd like using Tasker.
Sounds like you need Drive Sync. I have been using it for years. Syncs a folder on your phone and its sub folders with a folder of your choice on Google Drive. Works great for keeping your photos backed up on Google Drive in the folders you organized them. You can have it happen automatically or when you tell it too. You can tell it to only upload, only download or sync both ways, etc. There is a version for Dropbox and One drive by the same Dev.
I've been using AutoSync for Google Drive. It's a neat app, I'm thinking of getting the Pro version but haven't gotten around to it yet.
Two options for pc or mac are
You can find these two here.
I use Drive Sync which syncs drive folders seamlessly with the Android phone's file system.
I've never messed with a Vita, but I assume it's running either iOS or Android. If it's running a form of android, you can use this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ttxapps.drivesync&hl=en_US&gl=US . If it's iOS, I'm sure there's an equivalent app there. Just install it and configure it to sync whenever and it'll do everything automatically.
Cross Device Sync in Tachiyomi is not planned in the future, but you can use Autosync for Google Drive in order to sync backup files to Google Drive automatically.
Install the app from the link above
Enable Auto Backup by More > Settings > Backup Frequency and set it to your desired frequency and storage location.
Download the latest backup from Google Drive and restore to whatever device you have
I'd get this, but I don't use the other clouds, and I've long used Autosync for Google Drive:
upgraded to premium. One of the features of Autosync (which Foldersync may share, I do not know) is that, unlike Google's own Drive app, it can robustly upload big files. Google's app insists on making a tmp copy before it starts uploading, and at least the last time I tried it, it fails for files that are hundreds of megs.
It's really nice designating a folder pair, phone and cloud, and have an app automatically keep them in sync.
I think with 3rd party.
But personally I don't mind storing my files in the cloud generally, to each their own.
Drop Box has auto-sync built in I think.
Yup I did,
Pixel 3 will be original until 2022 after that it will be free high resolution
I've been doing for a year and a half now to keep originals uploaded for free
I used drivesync but moving to onedrive sync app
Cause google drive trash uses up your main space and cause when I upgraded to google one they take away my free 15 gb space, I bought 100 gb but got +85gb
Pair folder in app to camera folder and to Google drive or one drive folder
Then sync them automatically with the app
Additionally I sync them to my Mac with the desktop client and after pixel uploads them drop the folders on my mac to their specific album on Google photos to stay organized
Just organise everything in the one folder you can sync for free
On pixel camera album all photos in folders will be backed up
If you need more help write me
no luck yet. But if you have android there is an app on the play store called auto sync. You can save the recording to your external hard drive connected to the shield. Then this app will periodically sync for changes and will upload the recording to the cloud as they are completed.
Has one drive version too
I would put everything on Google drive or one drive whichever is bigger for you or your company provides
Use the app to setup folder sync and drag photos like 100 /day and delete them after pixel upload
Pixel 3 is quite sluggish for me while backuping and organising so I sync my Samsung s10+ to drive and drive to pixel with this app on both after its done
I use my Mac to drop the folders uploaded or files to albums
Example camera folders to camera album
You can see its quick so it doesn't upload the files again just puts them into the album [since pixel already uploaded them ]
Good luck 👍
Additionally I would install youtube advanced for ad-free youtube, you can google it 😀
Do you use cloud storage? You can achieve what I'm thinking you are asking for with AutoSync. The free version allows backing up one folder. If you don't use Google Drive the dev has versions for other services too.
No, Drive files are not stored in the phone, only in the cloud. However you can just open google drive on the PC.
If that's not an option, you can use an automatic sync tool as a workaround to do what you want. I can recommend Synchronize Ultimate, you can have 2 or 3 profiles in the free version. (Alternatively this, from the same developers but specifically for gDrive)
Then you'll store the files on the phone so they're always accessible through USB, but you also set up the sync tool so it syncs any modified files to your cloud. That way, you can always do your work from your phone's storage but also always have a cloud backup
🤦♀️ You are wrong. iCloud can not automatically download files by itself to an iPhone. By default, none of cloud drives on a phone can do it natively.
iCloud just creates aliases to those files on your iPhone. To be able to use files you need firstly manually tap that alias and wait until the file will be downloaded. Only after that, you'll be able to use downloaded files.
It also requires an internet connection. But I don't have constant internet connection all the time on my iPhone when I'm away from my home. That is why I need to have all files, from cloud drive, pre-downloaded to my phone even when I'm not connected to the internet.
Just read info about "Autosync for Google Drive":Autosync for Google Drive - Apps on Google Play
play.google.com › store › apps › details › id=com.ttxap...
I hope you'll understand how does it work. I'd like to have the same functionality on my iPhone.
Yes and yes.
However he'll lose the autobackup built into Google photos, but he can use an app which can backups all his photos automatically.
I use autosync for Google drive
I achieved that i synced save files folder in google drive. And in android i use google drive and this app for syncing citra folder. It works. I use it to sync save files not ROMs.
I use an app called Drivesync Pro that automatically uploads photos and videos to my Drive account.
For some reason it's now called Autosync but on my phone it's Drivesync. Anyway, without a password or fingerprint to the phone, they won't ever find what it uploads. And they'd probably be completely unaware that deleting from Drive only moves things to the bin, which can easily be restored.
Perhaps AutoSync could help?
I've not used it but I just read about it. You can sync a folder on your device with a folder on Google Drive. It's not ideally what you're looking for, but I imagine you could have a folder on Drive with a few books to access on your phone. You could add and subtract books in Drive to keep a more managable My Shelf on your device.
Clear as mud?
For the display, I found a 42" 1080p television on Facebook Marketplace for $20. It's wall mounted above my computer desk with the Mini PC mounted under it. Since the miniPC only has VGA (which my TV doesn't have) and DisplayPort (which my TV doesn't have), I ended up getting an HDMI to DisplayPort cable and doing it that way.
I haven't looked into remote management. I have that computer, my desktop and my laptop all on a pushbutton KVM to keep the mouse/keyboard mess at a minimum and they each have their own dedicated monitors so I always have eyes-on even when I'm not steering.
I have it capture the clips in TinyCam and store them locally. The built in feature to sync to GoogleDrive is kinda buggy, so I end up using Google Autosync https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ttxapps.drivesync&hl=en_US to do a one-way sync (PC to the cloud) when it detects changes to that directory in the file system. That works pretty flawlessly. About once a month, I go into the directory in Google Drive and purge off old stuff, as it can add up quickly with that many cams.
Autosync for Google Drive lets you sync your local file system with Google Drive.
I use this myself, it works flawlessly so far. I have set it to sync only *.pdf files to my Boox Note 2. These PDF then pop up on the "storage" tab of the UI and open in the built-in PDF reader. Annotations will sync with the PDF (they're embedded) and can still be e.g. erased after sync.
Note: it does not sync real-time, but you can set it to a defined interval (5mins is the lowest)
I use it mostly for emulators, but it'll work for SV as well as other games that leave their save files accessible without root...
It lets you sync up specific folders to Google Drive. You can set it so it syncs whenever it notices a change, or at an hourly/daily interval.
Do you use any online backup services? There are autosyncing apps that do this.
I personally use drive autosync and Dropbox sync to keep my MacBook, desktop, phone and tablet to have the exact same files at all times automatically.
I'm using gdrive, with their app on PC and this app on my phone:
I do the same with retroarch and it works very well.
I got this app, so it syncs any pics i take in my camera folder to a folder i specify on gdrive. so it should still do a gphoto backup as well as a gdrive backup
Just heard about this now, so im super disappointed because gdrive is my photo backup as well, i like having a local pc copy as a backup in case i lose access to my cloud
so im wondering, since photos/drive wont talk, cant we just have another app sync pics to a folder we select? using an app? like this? [link]
Are you looking for a file explorer app which also supports Team Drives or any app with support for Team Drive? The offiicial Drive app from Google of course works. My Autosync for Google Drive also supports Team Drives. But neither is a general purpose file explorer.
I use Autosync for Google Drive
to synchronize folders between my phone and Google Drive; that fills the only lack I find in the Google Drive app. It'll also keep trying until it gets a big file up.
As someone said, pushbullet works well. But it's manual.
I use AutoSync for google drive. There's other versions for one drive, dropbox etc. It sync individual folders on android with a folder one of the mention cloud services. Which of course you can then sync with your PC. You can set up mutliple folders and you can set them to sync differently.
Full Sync - Any changes made on either side will be changed globally.
One way from cloud to android folder (or reversed). Android folder will always match what is in the cloud. Any changes in the android folder will be overwritten.
One way and delete. Same as above. However folder will be sent to location and deleted from the source.
This is outdated and myopic reasoning. There is no reason as to why you should not be able to download things locally on a chromebook.
Furthermore, there are several apps that simply do not offer a automated backup to drive option...
On top of all that, what you've said is simply not true.
I've used this app to automatically backup PDFs from my notes for class because Squid doesn''t have an automated backup to drive option. Squid has them automatically generated every 6,12,24, etc hours.. From there, drivesync can
A) Automatically notice a change in the contents of the directory you've specified to upload.
B) Wait every 1,2,3,4,...n hours to scan the directory you've choosen, then upload that to drive.
There's some pricing, and naturally, you grant the app access to your drive, but it's a solution for now. I imagine you would also be able to do something like this with MacroDroid or tasker.
Get this app:
You can manually sync a folder with Google Drive and have it auto-upload when a new save is made.
The trick is, there's no way to detect a new file in the cloud and download it the moment it's made. So what I do is set an auto sync interval for every 2 hours or so. That way, anything saved on one device will be downloaded to the other at that set interval.
You can also manually sync if you know you just saved on one device and want to continue on the other.
I use this for the SNES9X from Robert Broglia, but it should work for pretty much every emulator and any other Android games that you have access to the save files.
You would think that it does, but folks have had problems with it over time, including being able to re-import the backup created this way. Not sure what the issue is but hopefully /u/joaomgcd (the new developer of Tasker) can take a look at it.
The solution would be to do the standard backup function, and then put it in a folder that automatically mirrors it to the cloud using something like DriveSync.
I use this on my Shield TV. Works great! It syncs my movies and TV from GDrive. I paid $5 to upgrade so I have multiple folders going to multiple destinations. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ttxapps.drivesync
So on Android I use a program called DriveSync to keep my saved games synced between various devices. I tell it where the folder/files are on both devices. When I save a game and the file changes, it automatically uploads it. And both devices check every hour or so to see if there are any changes on the Google Drive side of things and they download the new saves.
I'd like a similar option on Windows 10 if possible. I know I can use symbolic links and/or tell Drive/Dropbox to sync other folders. But those options are too intrusive and or complicated for this in my opinion.
So is there an app out there that can do the same thing as Android's DriveSync? Here's a link to the app in case folks are wondering what I'm talking about:
I know this is old but you can use Google Drive Autosync to automatically sync a drive folder to your device (and vice versa), then change the formula to refer to a directory instead of a url.
Free version of the app provides one free folder sync.
The backup that exists everytime you leave the interface can be copied/moved to the SD Card or to another folder, etc and then you can sync that to the cloud to Drive or Dropbox with something like <strong>DriveSync</strong>.
So when you want to 'make' the backup, just have a Task that does the above with the copy/move file, and DriveSync has Tasker integration so an action in a Task can initiate the sync. Link that Task to a Profile with a Time context (or whatever trigger you want) and that should take care of it.
I use an app called autosync to upload the contents of specified folders to Google Drive. I then choose on my desktop Drive client which folders I want synced to my PC.
It works very well and the app has many options to play with. I have to say, I don't understand Google Photos and how that works so can't offer advice there.
I use Drive Sync which syncs through google drive. The free version lets me sync one folder, which holds my NES, SNES, and N64 saves
You can do this with autosync Google drive app from the play store if your
Chromebook has Android apps. I do this with rom saves and other files. Not to sd card though. (Android apps can't access sd yet on Chromebooks)
Does your Chromebook run apps yet? You might try the app Drive Auto-Sync as that may work for you however I'm not certain how well the app works on the relatively new (to it) ChromeOS platform. For example where and how the app looks at directories could be non-existent or broken but it's worth a shot.
Seems like the lesson learned is:
1) If you've never lost a phone then 'oem unlock' is the first thing you should so you can recover if you happen to run into a bootloop condition.
2) Have a good sync to cloud backup solution like DriveSync or OneSync app.
The app I use is:
I know Google drive does some sort of offline sync in chromeOS but it doesn't seem as robust as this app.
Try Autosync Google Drive.
The free version lets you to backup/sync only one folder to your google drive. So I choose to backup the root folder (/storage/emulated/0), so everything on my phone is saved on google drive. I only excluded the Android folder (where the apps are installed) because you generally don't need to save any of this. Be sure to change the file size limit if you save some bigger files because it was only up to 3 or 5 MB when I installed it.
I use it since a couple of days, just in case of bootloop or if I need to flash a ROM, and it works flawlessly.
Technically, I think their unlimited storage is only 10 TB. (However a friend said that he had uploaded 15 TB before the limit got exhausted.)
Source - as a student at a university using g suite, I'm officially entitled to "unlimited storage" but a google drive sync app (for android) shows total available space as 10 TB. Could of course be that the app's limit in the total memory variable maxs out at that, but I don't think that number is (2 power anything) - 1.
Of course, it could be different for businesses and students, but it'll be weird calling both "unlimited" and then giving 10 TB to students and 15 TB to employees.
(Yes, I'm aware the data usage is different. I took the screenshots at different times.)
I'll add screenshots as soon as I'll figure out how to use imgur.
Edit: here you go - [link]
And here's the app: [link]
I think you'd be better off to get a third party program like Autosync Google Drive to do the backups. You can create a manual back up for each folder you want. I've been using it and it works flawlessly. You can set it to download on file change or do it in intervals. They also have one for Dropbox or OneDrive.
Try autosync Google drive
I use the Dropbox version of this app and it's worked perfectly every day for years. It automatically uploads photos, video, and/or any file type to your cloud account. Can set it to only do while on wifi, when it detects any changes or a standard intervals. You can set various options for the synchronization. Eg two way mirror, download or upload only, etc
Sync all media, documents, files, etc. across devices. Although I have more free OneDrive storage but prefer Google Drive since it has better throughput.
does apple give you apps like autosync for google driv? i use that to back EVERYTHING up that i need. google photos will do pictures, titanium backup will back that stuff up, but autosync is good for any other odds and ends files.
I upload original size. I use Google Drive for nearly everything so I'm paying for extra storage (100GB for $2/month). I also backup all folders that are important to me to automatically to Drive just incase something happens I reset my phone or switch phones I can easily get my folders and files the way they were. I use this app for backups [link]
Sorry, I know that was off topic, but for anyone that's interested- there you go. There's also a dropbox version of that app.
I'm sure you could do it with something like AutoSync for Google Drive. I've never tried it, but I use their Dropbox sync app, and it's good.
On a given time, copy the Tasker backup to a folder you've setup to sync with Gdrive.
I think it's in ~/Tasker/config/auto
I guess you could just sync that folder. No need for Tasker.
oh shit, no. I wish.
I use Drive autosync to DL folders from from drive. Which are then locally nabbed by Tasker.
Issue is, I need different folders for 4K, 1440p, 1080p, then the genre of resolution. Since I use them on my desktop, laptop, and soon a tablet. However, on my phone, it really doesn't matter since it's all 16:9. But, I need Tasker to be able to nab from different folders. Which is where this issue comes from.
I could just have a duplicate of my wallpapers, all in one folder again, but that would waste my small drive space. And I could have tasker move the files from the folders onto one on my phone, but I think that would cause an infinite loop of DLing, then moving.
Although, if you're looking at autosync, be warned that you're limited to one folder unless you go pro. IMHO it's worth it, but that's just me.
Autosync for Google Drive is powerful and highly configurable: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ttxapps.drivesync
I use keepass. The keepass files are on my google drive so they get synced across my computers and as long as I know my google password I can access the files. I also have "Autosync for Google Drive", formerly "Drivesync" on my android phone that automatically syncs the password files with my phone. On my phone I also have "KeePassDroid" that can open KeePass files, and there is a portable version of keepass that lets you run the program from a USB stick. Either the portable version directly from the first link in this comment, or you could install this and other tools in a handy menu like PortableApps.
So depending on your setup in school the worst case would be you reading the password off your phone, best case starting the program from a USB stick.
Recommendation is to always do a manual backup, at least on a weekly basis (depending on how often you modify Tasks etc). You will find this backup option under the 3-dot menu > Data > Backup then you just choose your filepath and name.
3-dot menu > Data > Backup
After that you should either send it to the cloud, or - when choosing the filepath choose a path on an external SD card if your device has one. (Tasker can write to the folderpath on the external of /storage/YOUR_CARD_NAME/Android/data/net.dinglisch.android.taskerm/
Note that Tasker doesn't backup any Global Variable names/values on its own as part of that above backup. If you have Global Variables set whose values are important to have backed up, there is a Task to Backup Global Variables.
Lastly, once you have these backups created, rather than having an additional manual step of uploading to the cloud, use an app like DriveSync, DropSync, FolderSync, etc. that does auto-cloud uploads anytime a folder on your device is modified. (and of course choose the folder where you place your Tasker backups).
As an additional resource here is a thread about a completely automated method using AutoApps.
(the native app doesn't do this),
for your pc, the basic windows 10 music player should be good (if you set proper music library based on the sync location) but Media Monkey is great too. Itunes can sort your music fine as well. Please ensure that your files, any id3 tag is preserved and not altered in any way. and you should have pretty close experience to spotify.
web linked does not provide any access to pirated material. i'm not affiliated with any of the program linked above.
I've been using this for a few years now. Works great.
Have multiple folder uploads set up in it for different apps and stuff
Just use a different app to monitor your rom/saves/savestate folders to sync with Google Drive; i.e. Autosync Google Drive.
And I'd like to add a few myself.
Check out DriveSync/AutoSync by MetaCtrl. They also make sync tools for other clouds.
I know you're asking for Tasker code, but this program is that I use for backups, save files, APKs, etc
This. Auto Drive Sync
AutoSync for Drive
I have achieved this same idea using Google Drive and the Metactrl Autosync app to perform the synchronization on my Android devices, a 2021 Fire HD 10 and Nvidia Shield TV.
I am curious, does OneDrive work without a separate Android sync app? Metactrl, the authors of AutoSync also has a OneDrive sync app suggesting it does not work automatically on Android for OneDrive either.
I'd be interested in using OneDrive instead of Google Drive if I can remove the AutoSync app. Synchronization sometimes seems flaky, at least with the Shield.
For those looking for directions, the post that motivated me to set this up was more of a write-up than a guide:
/r/retroarch Quick tutorial for cloud-syncing your saves from Computer to Android
The biggest problem I encountered was trying to share the save folder on my computer, I don't think I was able to see it on my Android devices. my solution was to add the folder to Google Drive and mark it for synchronization, then change my retroarch config to use that folder on the PC.
Hi, It isn't possible to set auto-backup to non-local locations. That's a file manager thing. However, some people use Autosync
Will do this is the app I use [link]
[link] works with pretty much any emulator as long as the save file name is the same on both android and pc.
Autosync for Google Drive
Shh! It's supposed to be a secret! ( It's a 3rd party service called AutoSync).
I like to backup non-camera pics to Drive using AutoSync. Then I turn off/on the 'Show Drive photos' option in Google Photos.
The official Google Drive app does not support sync. You may consider a third-party app, e.g. Autosync Google Drive.
You can do this with Tasker by using the "File Modified" Profile Event (it also works for monitoring folders) and then in the Task use the AutoWeb (beta) plugin with the Drive or Dropbox API's it has available to put the file(s) into the cloud.
However, as was mentioned in another reply - I would recommend using <strong>DriveSync</strong>. Either use it 100% on its own to do the upload, or - it has Tasker integration built-in so you could do a hybrid solution:
Create a Profile to monitor the folder, then in the Task have Tasker ask you if you want to initiate the DriveSync sync process. Regarding asking you - create a dialog via a Scene, or for more convenient method use the <strong>AutoTools</strong> plugin's Dialogs, or <strong>Snackbar Plugin</strong>.
Foldersync or Autosync Google Drive
The simplest solution I've been able to find is using something like Autosync Google Drive or FolderSync. For some reason the official Google Drive android app doesn't have a sync option. If you don't want to use an app it should still be possible via Termux, but most of what I found were basically just wrappers for google drive APIs in various languages. There may be more options if your chromebook is in dev mode, but mine isn't currently so I can't do much digging (maybe a symlink to a mounted filesystem created via chromeos shell?)
EDIT: Actually if you have somewhere to host a private git repo this would be pretty easy with git-sync or something similar. It might be as easy as downloading the file to your wiki directory and adding watch -n <interval> bash ./git-sync to your startup script, though I haven't tested it.
watch -n <interval> bash ./git-sync
EDIT2: Tested the git solution, and it seems to work pretty well after initial setup. In order for it to be fully automated I used git-credential-store so I wouldn't have to type my password, but termux can't modify permissions properly so I've got a completely unprotected password sitting in plain text on my drive now. A devoted user account means it's only that repo that's at risk, but I'd recommend using a different, more secure method.
I've been using this for a long time, you can even set it to sync as soon as a photo has been taken.
You can try to use this app.
It is fairly straight forward. Set up AutoSync for Google Drive on your phone. There is a trial period.
Configure a folder pair between your GoogleDrive podcasts folder and a folder local to your phone. Synchronize.
In podcast addict on your phone, New Podcast > Virtual (AudioBooks) > Select the folder on your phone.
It should do the rest from there.
I think they changed the name
I couldn't find a DriveSync, but found an AutoSync - I assume that's what you meant?
For anyone interested, found an app that will autosync your devices with Google Drive.
Use this app to sync folders with Google Drive. Sounds like it'll do what you want. [link]
You can sync your Tachiyomi backup folder with AutoSync for Google Drive app from Play Store.
I use this on my Android phone:
I mean this
I use AutoSync for Google Drive https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ttxapps.drivesync&hl=en_US.
I use this paid app since it has finer controls over syncing.
Use this one. You can continue on different device.
Autosync for Google Drive by u/tdtran0101 supports resumable upload. Test it before buying.
AutoSync with pcloud support
you can use Markor with DriveSync so that it will fulfill both your needs.
I use Autosync for Google Drive. [link]
Autosync for Google Drive?
The official app doesn't support sync.
Try Autosync for Google Drive.
You need a third party app to do this. I'm using Autosync for Google Drive.
Use auto sync for Google drive. It's a really usefull tool. You can sync any folder you want to your Google Drive
I don't have the answer to your question but I use DriveSync, works flawless every time
You can also use Autosync to get syncing in an Android app accessible folder. That's what I use, along with Xodo Reader.
You will need a google drive/dropbox/safari(I think)/onedrive account.
It sync like the normal ones do except the app works differently on the phone.
So you assign it to sync folder on your phone to folders on your android. However each can have different modes.
Two way - Any changes made on the cloud/pc folder will change on the phone. Any change made on the phone will change on the pc/cloud
Upload only - The phone folder will never download anything. Only upload to the folder.
Upload and Delete - As above but once finished it will delete the contents of the android folder.
Upload mirror - cloud/pc folder will be copied to exactly what is on the android phone.
Download only - It will download any files from your PC/cloud folder that aren't in your android folder.
Download and delete - As above but it will delete the PC/cloud folder when deleted
Download mirror - It will make the android folder an exact copy of the pc/cloud folder
I've been using this for years and I've used various features.
Currently my music library is on a two way sync. I have a backup run nightly which uploads and deletes. I have a wallpaper folder which is download only. I used to save emulator files (for saves and games) on two way so I could play on PC and mobile. Save file followed me around.
I paid for this years ago (one of the few I genuinely recommend buying). It's cheap but so good and I rely on it at this point. Very reliable.
If this doesn't work there's robocopy. It's basically writing a script to copy files from one location to another. You'll create an icon on your pc click it and run. Simple enough. You could also use ES file explorer to set your android folders as shared and do it over the network. More fiddly and a bit of background work. Won't work remotely like autosync.
I think DriveSync matches most of what you're looking for
Autosync Google drive
I use these apps. Free version only allows syncing of 1 folder though. It's worth the money if you want to sync multiple folders.
I've been using these for 5 ish years now.
You'll have to grant write access to your SD card when you first use it, which it will prompt you to do.
Try this [link]
Check out DriveSync, this will do what you're looking for.
I used to use it with [link]
Autosync Google Drive works great!
Just found this: [link]
Seems to do everything I wanted!
Likewise Autosync Google Drive
Dropsync and/or Drivesync [link]
Yes, it can upload and delete local file. Check my dropsync screenshot [link]
I like [link]
There's a few apps on the Play Store that will do that for you
This works well in my experience
I use Orgzly and Autosync Google Drive. Until Orgzly supports sync'ing over Google Drive.
Absolutely, don't listen to the others. I have my phones music folder synced with my work laptop, home laptop(this just comes out at partys to play music. It's crap) and home desktop.
Now if you use google play music I think this will work. Simply set up both and they will sync with each other.
If you get your music through other means
First set up google drive on your laptop. Move your music library into the drive folder and allow to upload. Now once done install AutoSync onto your phone. This sync your chosen folder (or mutliple folders at a price) with your selected folder on google play. Simply link your two music folder et voila.
So, an uncommon way to do it, but this is my LiS background solution.
I use Drive AutoSync to sync my Drive Backgrounds to my phone. Where I then use Tasker to Randomize Wallpapers. This is perfect when used with Rotation Locker.
Unorthodox. But it's how I do.
Try Autosync for Google Drive
i use Autosync
Hum we are in r/fossdroid. I don't know any.
If you don't mind closed source, try:
It's a google drive sync app for Android. I can basically sync individual folders with my phone. I use it in various ways with my phone.
* My music is a two way sync and syncs all my music folders with drive and my phone.
* I have an app that saves some backup files to a folder on my phone. Autosync then uploads and deletes the files from my phone (keeping them on drive).
* I used to save my emulator saves to a filder which synced that worked with my PC emulators at home.
* I have all my custom ring/notification tones backed up
I have a few more but you get the idea. If it deleted I'd have to do a lot more manual work where I have a lot of stuff automated now.
No work arounds and no root this is the app you need and I can personally vouch for it. Excellent app hands down. Has the features drive is missing and has a sister app for Dropbox.
edit- sorry, didn't realize what sub I was on with all the Android subreddits I'm subbed to. I'll leave this link though the app is that good.
