I've got a lot of photos, ~100GB worth. Most of these are discards, I organize my photos with Picasa so I've got the best ones in albums (~10GB worth). I'd like to backup only these photos (it's to Dropbox, so uploading all of them is not possible), is that possible?

Use the built-in Backup Tool. You can select which folders and/or albums will be included in the backup

Create a new backup set and select Disk-to-disk backup. Then select your Dropbox folder as the destination.

Is there any way to automate this? – fredley Mar 29 '11 at 14:55
It's not possible to schedule it from Picasa. Unfortunately looks like there's no (known) command line options as well. Maybe sync to web is an option for you – Siim K Mar 29 '11 at 19:57
Ok, thanks for your help. – fredley Mar 29 '11 at 23:36

You should be able to get Dropbox to only backup specific folders using a symblink.
