I am using RM5 on a Windows 7 desktop. I know, I should upgrade to RM6 but I have been too busy working on my major genealogy project. I will do so once I have some free time. I currently backup my important data to a flash drive using SyncToy.
I want to start using Dropbox for RM data as my file is starting to get somewhat large (4.7 MB). I have installed the Dropbox app on my desktop and have moved a recent .rmgb file to the Dropbox server.
For my current situation I have the following questions:
1. What should I be storing on Dropbox, the .rgmb backup files, the current .rmgc file, or both? The only advantage i can see in having the .rmgc in Dropbox is that I will have the capability to access it remotely - something I don't need at present.
2. While setting up the local Dropbox folder I discovered that I had not set up the RM default folders properly. As a result both the .rmgc and .rmgb files were stored in My Documents as individual files. I have now set up the five folders as recommended. Backups are being directed to the correct folder, but the current file, .rmgc, is still in My Documents. Do I need to drag it into the \RM5_Data\Data_files folder in My Documents?
I realize these are are very basic questions but I want some assurance that I am on the right path before moving ahead.
