Automatic backup to Dropbox on Raspberry Pi

Category : Tutorials · by Mar 4th, 2014

Recently, I have been working a lot on Raspberry Pi server and as it had more functionality and useful data, problem of automatic backup became quite critical. As I am an active user of SkyDrive (OneDrive) I wanted to do a backup there. But after quick search it appears quite hard to do (if not impossible), so I decided to use Dropbox instead.

The first tutorial I found was this one from Dave Hope. Quite a nice script, doesn’t use any dependencies, but unfortunately I haven’t been able to run it (probably because of my lack of experience with Linux in general). So I decided to use Andrew Fabrizi’s Dropbox Uploader and write my own script.
