About Dropbox & FTP
Dropbox is a wonderful network storage device with two most important functions - storage and syncing. It may be not enough to only store files in the cloud, and Dropbox allows you to sync between computers and Dropbox, which is one of the most popular solutions for online storage.
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a time-tested way to share files between computers over a network connection. Shared files are uploaded to a central server, and team members access them by downloading the files to their local computers with an FTP client.
However, for any reason if you want to sync Dropbox with FTP, there is no direct way without a third-party software.
What’s the best tool to sync?
Here, we recommend you MultCloud. It is a free and professional multi-cloud manager, allowing to combine many of your clouds into one for syncing. Those clouds including Dropbox, FTP/SFTP, Amazon Cloud Drive, Box, Google Drive, OneDrive, SugarSync, Copy, Evernote, Cloud Me, Cubby, Yandex, MediaFire, hubiC, and MEGA, etc. Like any sync with MultCloud, you have two ways for Dropbox to FTP sync.
- One-way Sync: The added, modified and deleted files in the source directory will be replicated to the target directory. However, the added, modified and deleted files in the target directory will not be replicated to the source directory. In addition, this includes Simple Sync, Mirror Sync, Move Sync, Full Backup Sync, Incremental Backup Sync, Update Sync, Cumulative Sync.
- Two-way Sync: The added, modified and deleted files in the source directory will be replicated to the target directory. Likewise, the added, modified and deleted files in the target directory will be replicated to the source directory (Namely, the files in the source and target directories are always the same).
Next, let’s show you how to sync Dropbox to FTP server with MultCloud.
