DropBox backup

Question asked by JoeSand on Oct 26, 2017

I have a script that "saves a copy" to a desktop directory using a time stamp as part of the file name, that I use for incremental backups, and I periodically "drag and drop" one of these files to dropbox for off-site storage.  I just tried to automate this process using a copy of the first backup script, and changing the file path to that of the Dropbox directory on my computer, and it gives me the "file cannot be created" error.  I've used the compete path to this directory, and as far as I can tell, it's fine (using data viewer).

 

Anyone tried this?  Can the dropbox folder not be treated like any other folder?
