When trying to backup on Dropbox it say "Authentication failed"
Checked my Dropbox setting and a4a has granted access... Where to look for the missing checkbox?

You can't find these setting in dropbox app. Check the relevant action in Automagic to make the authentication work (Grant access to your dropbox): http://automagic4android.com/en/help/co ... load_files

The "grant acces " button is the one giving me the " Authentication failed" message..
In September. Dropbox settings there is a list showing what apps / programs that have access to your folder..Here a4a is listed - bit i still recive an error ...

Installing the Dropbox app should theoretically not be required since the Dropbox API will authenticate the user using a browser when the app is not installed on the device. Maybe there was a problem with the particular browser in use or Dropbox had some temporary issues. At least a quick test this morning worked on one of my test devices (in combination with Chrome).
I'll add a hint in the help page that installing the Dropbox app can be used in case there are problems.
