    Looking for an app that will automatically upload photos and videos to my PC since the last time I uploaded.

    i.e. I want to be able to come home, flip the wifi button on the droid and have it auto sync all the photos and videos I've taken to my pictures and video directory that were taken since the last time I synced.

    Looking in the market and can't find anything obvious that would do this.

    MIQ from Bestbuy, here's the link.

    mIQ - Backup, Sync, Restore - Android app on AppBrain

    It's a free service and app, that lets you upload all those things via wifi to a webpage only you have access to.

    I've been using it for a week and so far so good.

    p.s. FYI, after you create your account and go to the log in screen, it seems to not like Firefox, but an IE Tab works fine.

    Thanks, but what I'm looking for is a way to sync my shot media with a PC at home. Don't want to upload all of it over the web.

    I can do this now manually the the FILE program, but it's a pain in the but.

    Someone must have written and app ofr this by now?

    A friend of mine is working on one now. I am helping him test it. So far things are going well.

    We have it backing up the entire SDcard to an open file share on a local server but, he is working on authentication for domains and such right now.

    Would really be nice if there was PC software via GUI method, there's one in the works for Linux (GTK frontend for SDK) but for now I use adb pull via USB, or I setup swiftp on the Android and ftp off there.

    There's also Mobile Backup II, but it's not Froyo ready.

    There is a good freeware sync program called Syncback. I used to use it to sync my PSP files to a folder on my PC really easily.

    Couldn't find syncback in the market or appbrain. Is that what it's called?

    Sookster - did you find anything to do this job? That's what I'm looking for too.
