Android DCIM Folder Sync

android

#1

Is there any way to sync an entire folder with the Android app? Currently all pictures in the DCIM folder get backed up well and good. But with the Pixel 2 XL, some camera modes create a folder with the date/time and save several photos into it rather than the default location. Those folders (and the pictures within) won't upload. Any way around this? or even adding a feature for the app to monitor several folders instead of just one?

If not, does anyone have any suggestions for an app that could possibly monitor/move them from one folder to the sync'd folder when photos are taken?

Thanks!

Hi @rjpruett1 , yes, it is possible to sync a specific folder with the Android app by using the Instant uploads feature, which will be replaced with the new Camera Uploads feature in the next Android release, and it will automatically upload all the pictures/videos existing in the folder selected by the user, in a period of 15 minutes at most.

Unfortunately, this feature only works with pictures or videos and only a folder can be selected at the same time.

If not, does anyone have any suggestions for an app that could possibly monitor/move them from one folder to the sync'd folder when photos are taken?

You can use this project for that purpose till we face the multiple folders auto syncing.
