tools.db in Dropbox

tools.db in Dropbox

Postby RobSm » Fri May 13, 2016 12:46 am

Hi (new to cnc)

I use a laptop and a desktop for VCarve pro

Can I keep the tools.tools_db file in Dropbox so it syncs automatically?

If I have to copy it manually do I need to copy tools.tools_db.vectric each time?

What is tool.tools_db.vectric anyway?

The .vectric file is the backup of the .tools_db file that is made automatically when you install/upgrade VCarve. You don't need to sync it between computers.

I used to run with a central database accessed by two different computers and that worked fine. I can't see why DropBox syncing wouldn't work and I'm sure I remember people saying they're doing it.
