I’m not entirely clear on how the sync plugin works, and I can’t find the answer in the documentation. Let’s say my databases are currently on my Mac Pro, but I want to sync them with my MacBook Pro (using Dropbox). Here’s my understanding of the steps; please correct me if I’m wrong.
- Sync databases with Dropbox on Mac Pro.
- Import databases to MacBook Pro using the “Import Databases” command in the sync preference pane.
- Configure sync settings on the imported databases.
Is this correct? I’ve already done #1, but I’m having problems with #2. I’m not able to import databases successfully. The import window appears, along with my Dropbox account, but when I click “Next”, it hangs on the “fetching databases” window. One time it did display my databases, but when I tried to import one of them, it failed.
As an alternative, can I simply copy the databases to a thumb drive, transfer them to the MacBook Pro, and then set them up to sync with Dropbox the same way I did on the Mac Pro?
