I love dropbox, we all love Dropbox, it even comes preinstalled on our phones!
Sadly, it can be irritating when you get notices like this on the desktop
I noticed one day that my DropBox camera roll folder was using up the vast majority of my free space, something like 60 or more percent! Since I’ve got a 9 month old, its no wonder. I am constantly recording pictures and videos of her, so it’s a matter of course.
If we could move all files older than three or four months out of the Dropbox ‘Camera Uploads’ folder, we could really free up some space! Additionally, I wanted to backup my files from DropBox onto another Storage Provider (OneDrive) as well as move a copy onto my backup drive. To solve all of these needs, I wrote a PowerShell script which can run as a scheduled task to handle moving the items out of the Camera Uploads folder. This can be run on any system that you’ve got the DropBox desktop client installed.
