Sync Across Multiple Hard Drives

Sync Across Multiple Hard Drives

I'd love the ability to sync my DB across multiple hard dives. As a freelancer, I tend to work on a large number of projects at the same time, so being able to add an external hard drive (HD) for some larger projects is appealing to me. Maybe it could be something where if the external HD is considered a selective sync type folder, so if it ever crashes, it's still on DB.

This idea is going to need a bit more support before we share your suggestion with our team.

 

We’ve updated the status to encourage more users to back you up!

 

Additionally, you can take a look at our external drive backup feature, which is already available.

Hannah, backing up an external drive isn't a smooth process yet.

 

I had a Team dropbox synced to my external HD, and my personal DB said "Hey, we can back up that external HD for you." It created a weird loop where I wasn't' seeing any of the files that the rest of the team was creating, and when I booted up my 'puter after being on vacation, it started erasing thousands of files, which we eventually figured out was caused by my Team DB folder structure being nested in my personal HD. End of the day though, it would be SO much more helpful to just have multiple logins that can point to multiple locations either on my physical HD or an external HD.
