Android - Cannot Sync A Folder In 1.4

Recommended Posts

How can I make a sync happen between my phone and my computer? And no, I am not talking about a backup. A backup is not what I need. I need a full synchronization of a folder on my computer to be sent to my phone, and back from my phone to my computer.


If I edit a file on my computer, I want it sent to my phone. And I want the same to happen if I edit a file on my phone.


I know that 1.3 used to do this. It is what got me to not use Dropbox anymore. Where has it gone in 1.4?


What I want specifically to happen is my camera folder (/sdcard/DCIM/Camera) to be write access, and not just a read only copy on my desktop. And for the life of me, I cannot figure it out.


I have a Nexus 5, running latest KK 4.4.4 (KTU84P) + root access. I am NOT writing to an external SD Card, as the Nexus doesn't even have that.

There are several threads open with exactly the same question ... I created one by myself a few days ago (


You have to create a folder on your PC and then add it to your Android phone by scanning the QR-Code. Then choose your DCIM folder on Android (first disable easy mode under settings) and you have a read & write share. I know this isn't a straight forward way, but at least it works.
