This is my roundabout way of getting photos I take on my windows phone into NC:
Connect Dropbox on the device
Turn on camera backup
Connect dropbox to NC as permanent external storage
Move the photos from the camera backup folder on DB to my photos area on NC
Is there a way I can automate this?
I thought I could simply create a cronjob initially to move the files about and let NC pick up the changes periodically on a scan, but of course NC doesn’t sync the contents of dropbox, it simply displays them until I do something with those files manually.
WebDAV Auto-Upload This app provides a background agent for synchronizing your pictures to a „Cloud“ provider of your choice (i.e. ownCloud), as long as the provider uses the webDAV standard. You can use webDAV servers in your own home network, too (i.e. NAS storages if available).
Thanks both. No there’s no native support and even where apps fill the void, that doesn’t offer me automated backups - my ultimate goal here - I’ve been uploading them to the web interface with little effort so far but that is again a manual job.
So until there’s a client for WP10 I’m happy using other means to get the photos automatically backed up, I’d hope there’s a way of achieving the automated copy from dropbox or other external media (which is something I could use in other situations too).
