FolderSync is a application that enables simple sync to cloud based storage to and from local folders on the device memory card. It currently support multiple OneDrive,, Dropbox, Dump Truck, SugarSync, Bitcasa, Ubuntu One,, LiveDrive, HiDrive, Google Docs, NetDocuments, Amazon S3, FTP, FTPS, SFTP, WebDAV or windows share (Samba/CIFS) accounts, and support for more platforms are planned. Read-only access to protected file-system also supported - requires root.

Effortlessly sync your files. Backup your music, pictures and other important files from the phone to your cloud storage or the other way around. It has never been easier. Tasker / locale support enables fine grained control of your syncs.

FolderSync also contains a full file manager, that enables you to manage your files locally and in the cloud. Copy, move and delete your files in your cloud/remote accounts. Support for creation/deletion of buckets in Amazon S3. Upload and download files from the phone. It's all supported.

There is also a lite version, so you can test functionality before you buy. The lite version only allows two accounts and has no sync filters or Tasker support.

    Finally found something that will sync a network share to the phone, including deleting orphans. Very pleased. Works perfectly.

    Helps me keep files organized the way I want, and easier to make sure things get backed up properly.

    Easy backup sync from phone to network drive or pc. It would be even better if it would contained the possibility to copy sync options from folder to folder. Or a general setting with apply to all feature.

    Works great, has lots of settings for flexibility. You can set and forget. I use it to do instant backup of camera to Google Drive which in turn syncs to home computer. So when I take a picture its on home PC within a minute or so.
