      Filemaker Server 11 backup syntax using dropbox

      Your post

      Hey everyone,

       

      I would like to use dropbox to backup my database. I tried changing the path to my dropbox folder (filemac:/Macintosh HD/Users/media/Dropbox/), but it would not recognize the syntax.

       

      Any suggestions?

       

      Thanks!

       

      Jared

          Set up a scheduled back up to a local directory (The only place to which a schedule can back up).

          Then set up a system script not run from the server admin console that copies this file to your drop box.

          I know how to set this up on a scheduled basis in windows, but don't know all the details for doing it on a Mac--but it can be done from what I've seen posted here in the forum.
