I have been trialling storing my data in the Cloud (Dropbox) for sometime and am now confident that it's reliable, safe and accessible from any device. I found it particularly useful when I have to refer to my MySF files from two working locations (home desktop and my laptop). However, there is a nagging issue.. 

The folder directory in MySF uses physical folder directory name.

For example, in my laptop, my dropbox directory is:

C:\Users\usr1\Dropbox\MySF\MyFamilySuper

When I use my home computer, the physical directory is

C:\Users\usr2\Dropbox\MySF\MyFamilySuper

Due to this small difference, I had to rename the folder everytime I open MySF file from different computer. Is it possible to use logical, instead of physical directory name? For instance, Windows uses the logical library called 'Dropbox' or 'Documents' to point to the physical folder in C:\...?

Regards,
Ken

Hello,

Unfortunately there isn't anything we can do to solve this. Windows will treat those two file locations as completely separate locations due to the different names of the user folders.

We have used Dropbox ourselves and the workaround is to place the Dropbox into a location that is not user specific (ie. it is the same on both computers). For example, on both computers you could move your Dropbox location to C:\Dropbox\ or something similar. This way, MySF Manager will treat the file location as the same on both machines.

I hope that information helps.

Regards,

MySF

It's interesting to read from your reply "there isn't anything we can do to solve this". Since upgrading to 10.3.0, I have been able to use the pathname \\servername\MySF directory. In short, it works now. At least, MySF can now point to a server pathname (which is a logical name) Thanks for fixing this, though I thought you say it nothing can be done

Ken
