Following this sequence, you will create an effective Dropbox backup task using FTP as the data source. Each time the task will start manually or by scheduling, it will make Dropbox-FTP download without any need for further interference by user.
Note: You can use a protected FTP server connection (SFTP or FTPS) instead of FTP by selecting an appropriate plug-in. These plug-ins have slightly different configuration dialogs than a plain FTP. In all other cases, all things are just the same as for FTP to Dropbox backup!
It is no difficulty to copy any file to Dropbox folder, although it may be a tricky process to grab this file from FTP. Specialized client software, like FileZilla, or a browser-level FTP access, must be implemented to take some FTP files or folders without automation.
Performing FTP to Dropbox backup actions manually or by script is principally possible, but saves up to no efforts when compared with automatic actions, and have much more risks of human failures or operational insecurity.
