BS3 and Dropbox?
« on: June 19, 2018, 08:23:33 AM »
Preordered BS3, but have not installed it yet. I know there had been a lot of requests back on BS2 to be able to store your Documents folder on Dropbox, but it was not supported in BS2 and could cause data loss.

Does this work in BS3? I'm not trying to install BS3 to Dropbox (although that would be great) I just want to install on a local drive but store the BS Documents folder on Dropbox.

Thanks.

I do not recommend using Dropbox for data storage.  There is a lock file in place that could possibly keep you from running multiple copies, but I've not tested BeerSmith 3 with dropbox and I don't personally recommend storing your data there.
