I have a NAS (Synology DS-110j) wich im using more and more. And Im a heavy user of dropbox. I use it primair with my girlfriend, who lives an hour from here. I often make pictures wich I upload with my Galaxy S to my dropbox. I have the dropbox app but its limited. You can only upload one picture at a time. So im trying to find a way to move an amount of pictures through another way, but still to my dropbox and the shared folder that Im sharing with my girlfriend.

 

So I was thinking about moving my dropbox that is on my laptop, to my NAS. But is this even possible? Because if it is, I can use the new android apps for Synology (out in a few days, beta is delayed) to copy multiple files to my dropbox.

 

Its all about deleting unwanted steps and doing it with the least of "clicks". Like today, we went to a little fair in town and I made around 20 pictures. Uploading them to dropbox goes like this:

 

- open dropbox;

- select folder for uploading

- select uploading

- select galery

- select photo

- press upload

- wait for uploading to me done

- and that 20 times.

 

It should be:

 

- Open synology app;

- long press galary and selected multiple pictures;

- press upload.

 

In the end, the question is, can I move my dropbox that is on my laptop, to my NAS, without any trouble with passwords, firewalls, portforwarding etc etc?

Your Samsung Galaxy runs on android, right? Why don't you get a WinZIP app for your phone and zip all the images you'll be uploading. All your girlfriend has to do is to know how to unzip. I think this would be the smartest solution.

 

I personally use a WinZIP app on my symbian phone and having WinZIP on the go is really helpful!

Good question.....

 

When you install dropbox you are asked WHERE you want to put it OR, use the standard path -

%userprofile%\my documents/my dropbox"

 

If you map a drive to your NAS then reinstall Dropbox, test it. See if you can choose where you want to put it.

 

Personally, what I would do is setup your own SYNC using Windows Sync Toys. MrGroove wrote about it a few months ago:

Personally, I would leave dropbox where it is then use Livesync to SYNC it every few hours/days etc... I personally use Synctoy a lot however I kick it off manually. I think you can also use it from the command line also so you could schedule it:
