Default Backup Program - User Generated Files

I have an App that creates a database file (*.db) and updates it every time there is a change in the App. I am looking for a backup program that will backup this database file on a regular basis. AFAIK, Titanium doesn't do this nor does some other Apps like MyBackup Pro, etc. Backing up to the cloud, i.e. Box / Dropbox would definitely be a plus.

Thanks, in advance!

Where would you put this database file? I suppose in your app data. In which which case titanium backup schedules do the job perfectly.

It is created in a separate folder on the storage section (sd mount).

Why this choice? If it's that important you shouldn't take the risk of users deleting that. Which they can when it's on SD. Also, it's kinda strange to install an app and then have them install another app to keep the data in sync. Can't your app for that by itself?

At the end of the day, I am simply looking for a program that will backup to the cloud a specific file and/or folder from the SD. I am NOT looking for critiques of how and why my program functions a certain way.

Thanks!
