This app is exactly what I was looking for. I wanted tool that would let me backup and/or sync directories on my phone to Google Drive, without also needing something installed on my desktop or a VPS. It performs that perfectly. I was initially concerned with how it would affect battery life, since I had instant sync turned on for all my profiles, but I've not noticed any significant battery drain. Overall, it does exactly what I needed to do. Definitely would recommend.

I love it. It does everything I needed to do syncing folders from my phone to my PC, individually, on a schedule, with options like verifying that I'm on Wi-Fi and charging. The only negative was that I spent quite a while trying to figure out how to make it work because it wouldn't out of the box. I figured out that you have to enable SMB version 1 on the PC. Which Microsoft just disabled because it's very very old and has some vulnerabilities. I hope they update it to handle SMB v3 soon.

TRULY POWERFUL APP. This app literally allows you to make regular backups of any folders you choose. It manages it in the background and doesn't consume a great deal of the your devices computational power. It's easy to use and setup. You can make backups of your settings. And it can backup folders on the external sdcard. It also supports two-way ftp transfers which allows you to create a sort of mirror between a local and remote directory. I HIGHLY recommend.
