How i can set up Tasker to sync folder from my storage to cloud.
I know there are apps for that, but they sync just once, when file is added or deleted.
But i want to be able to upload it when it detects any changes in file.
To sync when wifi is available again, when i am not connected but i need it to sync files immediately when connected to wifi.

The "file modified" event will also monitor a directory. To select a directory, long press on the directory name when setting up the event.

In the following example, I use 2 profiles. One to set %FolderModified to "true" when the folder is modified. The second profile reacts to the %FolderModified variable AND a Wifi Connected state.

This means that whenever the Wi-Fi is connected, AND there has been a modification to the folder, the G-Drive sync will begin.

Note: I always use variables for sensitive data like the Gmail account in the File Modified Upload profile -> A1: GD Upload. This prevents an unintentional sharing of sensitive information. I do this for API keys, log in credentials, ect.
