Create a backup and dropbox uploading script/solution


We have data that is logged once per day onto a local PC.

We want to copy that data into a different folder structure in a new location on the same drive and also upload to dropbox in the same folder structure. It is important that the upload can occur without a user logged on to the machine.


Window 10 Pro

Current approach:

Powershell script scheduled in task scheduler and use the Dropbox api to upload to the cloud.


Under the current approach, your scope is to establish the supporting framework for getting powershell to interact with the dropbox api and write the script that will provide an upload function in the correct folder structure and upload confirmed flag.

Stretch scope:

Complete the entire script and give it some rad email reporting of errors etc.


There is flexibility that if you with to propose a complete solution via some other method that achieves the end goal then we are happy to discuss.

A basic script for the folder structure within Windows is available already.
