I have DTPO installed on 2 macs and have been syncing via the new method (since 2.5). I just have a question about how Dropbox sync works, as I think I’ve been making things unnecessarily difficult for myself. At the moment, when I enter something into a database and sync it from one computer, I’ll immediately perform a sync on the other computer to ensure both databases are consistent, but also because I’ve been a little concerned if I don’t do this it might cause issues in the database.
So, does Dropbox in effect store a ‘Master’ copy of a database, that will ensure both local databases stay up to date even if a sync is performed at different times with multiple changes to each database in between (if that makes sense). By way of example:
A database is in sync on Mac A and Mac B.
Make change/s to database A.
Sync database A.
Make change/s to database B.
Sync database B (database B is now up to date)
Sync database A (database A now up to date)
Apologies if this is a silly question - it may be the assumed behaviour, but if it is, I’ve missed the message.
