Just to complicate things further for the Magician's at RootMagic.

Ok. I have figured out how to use Dropbox between my PC's. This is working great. However, I have started using a macbook as well. I am am considering buying Crossover just to run RootsMagic on my Macbook.

However, I do not think this will work because I had to take the time to ensure that the pathway's on my PC were exactly the same in order for Dropbox to sync correctly between PC's. I do not think I can get the exact same pathway on my Macbook.

Has anyone done this or have a solution? I think I am outside "the Box" at this point.

Thanks for your thoughts and comments.

The path to your database really shouldn't matter. Just go into Tools>Program Options and set your default folders. It's the media links that will break, since the paths will be different. Is that what you were concerned about?
