Showing the Status of All Files in Dropbox on Linux

To show the synchronization status of all file in your Dropbox directory on Linux (I tested this on Ubuntu 14.04), run the following commandline:

find ~/Dropbox -type f  -printf '"%p"\n' | \
  xargs -I {}  dropbox filestatus "{}" | \
  tee /tmp/dropbox_status.`date`.log

Thanks to Marius Ducea for the -printf trick.

To see which files Dropbox is currently touching, use the command line shown here.
