The only way to sync photos on Lumia phone is via OneDrive, while I want to store them in Dropbox. The only plausible recipe on IFTTT is to sync Dropbox to OneDrive, not the other way around.

How to sync files from OneDrive to Dropbox?

    Unfortunately there is no trigger available OneDrive in IFTTT, so that precludes using that. I suspect that the OneDrive API simply doesn't have a way to get that information. – ale Oct 9 '14 at 11:25
  • I'm guessing you can get OneDrive to send you an email when a file is uploaded, but the email won't include the contents of the file. You might be able to fiddle with this idea and get it to work, though. – barrycarter Nov 10 '14 at 13:35

  • Thanks. At that time (2014) I only knew IFTTT. I didn't know that Microsoft has a service like that too – Ooker May 31 '18 at 4:18

You can install OneDrive and Dropbox in your computer, then having a script to automate copying files from OneDrive to Dropbox. There are programs that can do that too.
