I've seen one post on this subject, but am not sure of the current status: is it possible to back up Scrivener to Box.com instead of Dropbox?

If automatic back-up possible isn't possible, does anyone use Box to store .scriv files for manual backup?

Thanks very much.

Dropbox is the only service supported for *synchronization* with iOS Scrivener. But you can use any service you like for automatic backups.

Not all services handle the Scrivener project well -- although Box seems to do okay -- but making a ZIP backup will keep everything together for you. You'll find the setting in the Scrivener -> Preferences -> Backups pane.
