Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want to upload specific files(quite large) to cloud services like Dropbox or Google Drive within certain time interval(2AM to 8AM to be precise).
The reason I want to do this is because my internet usage is not counted during that time interval and I don't want to stay awake just to upload files.

Is it possible to schedule the upload process?

Since both services add a folder to your OS you could setup a cron (mac) or scheduled task (windows) with a script that moves files from a pre-determined folder to the dropbox and/or the google drive folder.
