I just went through a major disruption because I decided to store container files externally. I'm not sure why one would do it; does the size of the FM DB really matter?
Two major problems encountered:
- Certain container-related scripts not working in copies of FM files even though they are FM-generated, making stored backups non-functional in certain ways; I get various errors related to the stored contents.
- Server unable to receive or even send me a fully functioning DB file.
I suppose one could upload to the server a file with internally stored data and then transfer to external storage, and then reverse the process for when retrieving backups but why bother?
