Sorry to begin my life in this forum with a question
I tried a search on this specific topic, but I couldn’t find a complete answer, so I decided to open a new topic… sorry if I make it double!
The point is: I got I can “backup” my dBase(s) on any cloud (dropbox, MobileMe/iCloud etc.). But what happens when I decide to work on a db that is totally stored on my ftp space? Let’s put I have a big dB, say 4 Gb. Will I have to wait until the dB is completely “downloaded” into my copy of DT? Or will it just download some kind of “index” of the dB and, if needed, the document I intend to use/see/modify?
I’m asking this because I would like to be able to access to all of my data even on a 3G connection and, of course, I can’t ask my SIM to download 4 gigs of data in a reasonable time…
I know that there is Devonthink To Go, and I use it. But it recently happened to me that during a conference, I was asked a question I was sure I had a document about… on my MacBook while I only had my iPad and, of course, didn’t think to “sync” that particular dBase. So it would have been absolutely useful to me to be able to reach that particular dB “on the fly”, of course without having to wait for a huge amount of data to be loaded.
Thank you for any answer you will give to me!
