  1. Hello, I'm trying to write a script to allow pause / resume of Dropbox syncing; so that Dropbox syncing can be scheduled. So the idea is that the script will emulate what a user would normally do by clicking on Dropbox on the System Tray and then the script will toggle the sync operation If Dropbox currently syncing, will pause If syncing currently paused, will resume I'm writing this script for Windows 10 I am able to open Dropbox from the System Tray, but I can't figure out how to enumerate the controls. I would have been happy with the "simple" approach
  2. DropboxEX - Hardlinks Dorpbox is getting more and more versatile ! Most of you know it as a file sharing tool for different OS's and Mobile platforms . By the way I use 8 / 9 and 10, just amazing, but that's a different story. Anyhow the feature that is missing is, can I sync files and folders which are outside of the Dropbox area. And not to use a seperate sync tool that copies / duplicates all the files ? The answer was given here : Ok let's see what we can do with AutoIT to help a hand. I created 2 versions to create hard links to the dropbox folder called EXTERNAL. 1 version is
  3. Hello, the following script is running quite nicely for a friend of mine doing a year of work and travel to have a backup at home for all the pics and movies taken with her mobile phone, The facts: At home: a VMWARE virtual machine with dropbox installed for her DB account On-the-Road: One mobile phone, Camera Uploads are activated for her dropbox account, one Laptop. The idea is to have a copy of *ALL* pictures and movies taken with the mobile phone *OUTSIDE* the dropbox folder, so that the DB Max Size is never exceeded. The script is
  4. I've finally come up with a simple solution for dragging & dropping a URL. It's not perfect, but it does the job. Mostly just a tweak of some Help file examples. Thanks also to AutoBert, for his StringRegExp and example that set me on the right path. I have seen this requested for many times, so enjoy! It goes without saying, that any improvements are welcome.

  5. Using GoogleDrive for store my files, some days ago, i discover those nice messages : It is certain that if someone wants downloaded my files, such messages is not very encouraging ! So, don't know which incompetent AV Google use, but i decided to try some other files hosters. I have made this script last year for GoogleDrive, but tired of false positives, i adapted it to OneDrive and Dropbox too. Added the possibility to create a Html ShortcutRedirector as i use in my topics for download files. Buttons were made online with chimply.com the easy and free buttons gen

    This .au3 file will take the trouble out of trying to gain your dropbox oauth_access_token and oauth_access_token_secret by doing it for you. when first run the program it will create an empty folder on your desktop. As you progress through the application it will create text files as needed. Be sure to follow each of the message box's instructions as it is vital that each step be completed before moving onto the next. Enjoy
  7. Hello everyone! I present to you a way to automate DropBox, at least syncing... Sample: Donwload: DropBoxControl_(RedirectLink).html Usage: Ctrl + Q to exit. Ctrl + Pause to Pause/Resume DropBox! It can also use the following: #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Before="%scitedir%DropBoxControl.exe" /Pause #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_After="%scitedir%DropBoxControl.exe" /ResumeJust copy the executable into the folder of the editor! I hope you enjoy! Regards, João Carlos.
  8. I'd like to create a dropbox uploader (and downloader) to provide a simple file sync without using the dropbox app. The following is my current code (cadged and modified from other posts and websites), but I can't even figure out how to get initial authorization. Can anyone help? NB I would be quite happy to use the oauth2 Generated access token if it bypassed a lot of this, but I'm not sure how to do this. (If you can't guess, I know virtually nothing about http calls) Alternatively if there is a working autoit dropbox up/downloader, I'm more than happy not to write my own (but couldn't find
  9. I'm trying t upload a file to dropbox using the dropbox RESTful API. In the last section on the page at http://cgeers.com/2012/03/11/dropbox-rest-api-part-5-file-upload/ , the author uses a method "GetRequestStream" Everything I've done so far with the dropbox API has utilised a winhttp object, with the structure below: $oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1") $oHTTP.Open("POST", $URL, false) $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded") $authString = 'OAuth oauth_version="1.0", oauth_signature_method="PLAINTEXT", oauth_consumer_key="'&
  10. I've been trying all day to get a "request token" from the dropbox rest-api. Basically I'm trying to perform step 1 at https://www.dropbox.com/developers/blog/20/using-oauth-in-plaintext-mode: " 1. Make an API call for a request token: POST https://api.dropbox.com/1/oauth/request_token Your HTTP request should have the following header: Authorization: OAuth oauth_version="1.0", oauth_signature_method="PLAINTEXT", oauth_consumer_key="<app-key>", oauth_signature="<app-secret>&" The response body will be a url-encoded string: oauth_token=<request-token>&oauth
  11. im currently in the process of making a raided file store at home using freenas or openmediavault, or something similar. i had an idea of making my own dropbox like storage, where i can put a file into a specified folder, and it would automatically upload to my file storage. i would prob use some kind of encrypted ftp, but am unsure how well this will work with autoit. i have done some autoit, but this maybe beyond my scope, lol. but basically... i think the script would always be running, and check to see if the file already exists, and if not transfer it, and it could either check wh
