The battery percentage on my tablet has reached 30%, which is still reporting as about 11 hours left before it goes flat. However, my Dropbox app has stopped uploading files reporting:
Camera Upload (x left): Low battery, charge to resume
I'm not anywhere near anything I can use to start it but I want it to continue uploading screenshots I take in the mean time.
How can I force Dropbox to upload even if the charge is low?
Currently the official Dropbox app doesn't support automatic camera upload if you have charge less than 30%. You can do it manually though or through a browser.
Only 3rd party apps like DropSync can upload when it is at low charge.
I don't know of a way to cause the DropBox app to do it, but if you use DropSync (an third-party app that syncs Android<->DropBox), you can control the sync vs. battery behavior.
Go to apps and start dropbox. From the hamburg menu select settings (the wheel icon). Scrolldown until you see "upload when". Select and slide to when the charge is greater than ... whatever value, 5%. That should do.
Plug it into charge...it will upload straight away. Not always feasible I know but at least you don't actually have to wait for the battery charge to be higher...it does go ahead and upload straight away.
There is a setting now, but the minimum charge is 10%. Even if plugged in, the dropbox app won't auto-upload unless at least 10% (30% by default).
Yes, there is a setting in the Android app -> When to Upload. Set it to whatever you want.
