Syncing Between Computers
« on: June 19, 2011, 10:43:02 AM »
I used to have Beersmith synced between my laptop and home computer, so i did the same with beersmith2. Though My laptop does not have my recipes, i changed both the laptop and home computers directory to be in the shared folder, and still nothing. Is there a location that the recipe's are getting saved on my comuter that i may not be syncing between my two computers? I also activated beersmith on both computers already, please help.

Hey Conley,

When you say you put the directory into the shared file are you talking about the actual beersmith program files?

Open BeerSmith 2.0 and try going to File-Change Documents Directory. This is the directory that will save your recipes, inventory etc. I think that if you have these files on a shared drive you should be able to sync.

I have the program files loaded onto the hard drive of my work computer, and just changed the documents file to dropbox. It all seems to be working correctly on this computer. I will have to try it on the home computer when I get home tonight....

Activation and recipes showing up fine for me.
