No it does not. It only detects a file change locally and uploads the change to the Dropbox account. (This features is only available on the paid version).

You can set the sync time from days to minutes. I have my tool synced to once every hour and that is usually enough for my files to be in sync.

In my implementation Foldersync handles the actual syncing to my google drive account, Tasker initiates a sync whenever the reading app is closed or it receives a message from another device that a change was uploaded and Autoremote to make Tasker on each device talk to each other (for example once I close the reading app on my tablet it initiates a sync and then sends a message to my phone to wait a couple of minutes and then initiate a sync there as well).
I'm intrigued by your solution. It is a bit more complicated and a bit more expensive but you get a lot of control over your final solution. I really like the fact that you are not tied to DropBox.

How is the FolderSync solution. Does it handled recursive directories. Can you apply filters so it does not sync a certain type of file?

Also how complicated is Tasker to program. It looks like you had to perform some scripting to handle the synchronization.

Last question are these the apps you used in your solution?

FolderSync: $2.29
Tasker: $6.49
AutoRemote: $.99 (Can you use the lite version?)

Total: $9.76

DropSync Premium: $4.49 ( The price went down I paid around $6.50 for this app)
