Saving multiple [backup] files to dropbox

Describe the issue/error/question

What am I doing wrong here?

I have automatic backups coming in from a WordPress site, daily DB backups, weekly backups of all files, saved to a designated folder in Dropbox, and autodeleted after 30 days.

Once a month, I want to grab the oldest backup files and copy to another Dropbox account. This project has no budget for paid cloud storage…

What is the error message (if any)?

{"message":"409 - {\"error_summary\":\"to/conflict/folder/\",\"error\":{\".tag\":\"to\",\"to\":{\".tag\":\"conflict\",\"conflict\":{\".tag\":\"folder\"}}}}","name":"Error","stack":"Error: Request failed with status code 409\n    at createError (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/n8n/node_modules/axios/lib/core/createError.js:16:15)\n    at settle (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/n8n/node_modules/axios/lib/core/settle.js:17:12)\n    at IncomingMessage.handleStreamEnd (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/n8n/node_modules/axios/lib/adapters/http.js:269:11)\n    at IncomingMessage.emit (node:events:539:35)\n    at IncomingMessage.emit (node:domain:475:12)\n    at endReadableNT (node:internal/streams/readable:1345:12)\n    at processTicksAndRejections (node:internal/process/task_queues:83:21)"}

Hi @Entrepositive, googling the error message “to/conflict/folder/” you are getting from Dropbox suggests your path might not be correctly formatted. Perhaps you can check this?
