Ive checked DB help and community and cannot discover how to keep a MS word file in DB and on my computer hard drive. I'm told I have to sync it but cannot discover how. I'm running OSX Ventura 13.4 on a MacBook. Maybe these don't support what I want. Thanks for any help.

Hi @John Howkins1 

 

Have you installed Dropbox? www.dropbox.com/downloading

 

If so once you download and install everything on Dropboox will also be on your computer in the \Dropbox directory.

Thanks for this. I have already got DP on my computer. Is it right that everything on my DB folder on my computer is also in my DB folder online? And if I remove it from either the computer DB folder or the online folder, then it is deleted from both?
