I see that is quite straightforward to transfer a Dropbox FILE to Google Drive. But my video editor sends me a weekly folder which holds sub-folders for each day of the week and each of those holds separate folders for different file types including videos. 

I want to copy that weekly folder to Google Drive for backup purposes. We use G Suite Business. 

There doesn’t appear to be a straightforward way to upload an entire FOLDER to Google Drive using Zapier. 

Does anyone have experience with creating a clever solution for sending entire folders to Google Drive using Zapier? Thank you!

Hmm, I’m not sure that this is possible, because of the available dropbox triggers. 

 

The triggers for Dropbox are New file in folder (where you have to specify a folder) and New folder, so it’s not possible to ‘see’ all new files in a folder without first knowing what the folder is. I can’t think of a way around that one, sorry!
