WebDAV for Dropbox Service
Backup Software / WebDAV for Dropbox
Dropbox WebDAV interface is not existed; this is sorrow but this is true. The only way to work with Dropbox via open protocols like WebDAV is to use commercial bridge services (e.g. DropDAV).
Fortunately, Handy Backup contains two viable solutions for backing up to or from Dropbox:
Use the dedicated Dropbox folder as source or destination of data backed up. Instead of working via WebDAV Dropbox will use its internal protocols to automating synchronizing data located in this folder.
Register the parameters provided by the service (e.g. DropDAV) as the parameters of WebDAV for Dropbox access. The bridge service will compile your WebDAV data flow into the Dropbox data flow.

Find the “Dropbox” folder under the “Computer” feature when you select data. Handy Backup will process this folder and data will be automatically synchronized with Dropbox.
Note: Do not seek Dropbox folder among libraries or user directories; use the “Computer” option instead to find and select it.

This solution allows you to back up data to Dropbox as well as to other cloud storages (via WebDav) and devices such as USB drives, FTP servers, NAS, local and remote network drives.
Register on the DropDAV service. Then configure Handy Backup to use Dropbox WebDAV server. Setting up WebDAV for Dropbox, enter these data as WebDAV configuration:
Then check WebDAV using the “Test connection” button to see it working. Now you can use WebDAV for Dropbox backup.
These are some functions of Dropbox that can, for example, rewrite metadata from stored files. Handy Backup can be used to fix this situation using Dropbox WebDAV interface or Dropbox folder.
E.g., when Visual Studio projects are saved to Dropbox, an internal engine can spoil metadata, but Handy Backup retrieves it when implemented for data saving.
As configuring WebDAV for Dropbox can be a problem, why it can be useful to utilize Dropbox as backup server?
Firstly, Dropbox is quite popular, due to both high quality and reliability of data keeping. Dropbox backup can be accessed from any point on the globe via Internet.
The second reason to backup Dropbox is a price tag. From time to time not-so-actual data can be moved from Dropbox to another place, cleaning the Dropbox backup storage space.
