Hi
So I think you need to use these actions

Enable wifi access point
Add wifi access point

This may give you proper solution.

You have to use "Dropbox Init Variable File List" to get dropbox files and "Init Variable File List" to get device files. Compare both lists and then upload difference.

@medhassano : which new files do you mean? All file names those are not in the dropbox yet? Or it includes same file name with new modified date?

For new file names only, you can simply compare the file name on both local and remote path, remove the duplicate. While for modified date files, you need to extra check on the modified date attribute.
I don't use dropbox, so can't get the example result of the path retrieved using Dropbox Init Variable File List. Can you post example of the {files} result from one of your dropbox path? Use condition debug dialog to copy {files}
Please hide any sensitive file name before post it here (if there is any).
