Title

FileMaker Solution File on DropBox

Post

     So that I can work on a project both at the office and at home, I keep my working copy of the database on DropBox (with daily backups to local drive).

     Curiously, I have a layout that displays a bunch of system stuff including the path to the current database file.  When I run it from a local drive - all is well.  When I run it from the copy on DropBox, the database path stops at "file:/Macintosh".  Does DropBox and FileMaker not play well together?  Is there any other downside to working on a solution file on DropBox?

     thanks
