I just made some changes to my RM database and so saved a copy to using the "Save to Dropbox for apps" button.
 
Now, when I open my Android tablet, go to Files and then Dropbox I have four files listed
file.rmgc
file (1).rmgc
file (2).rmgc
file (3).rmgc
 
When I look at my Dropbox folder structure online, I only see one database file (rmgc) within the database folder. There are four different ones within the Backups folder. However, none of them have been touched in quite some time.
 
Where are these other listings coming from, or are they ghosts of some sort on my tablet? I'd really like to clean it up if possible.
 
Thanks!
 
Robert

Make sure you are looking in the Dropbox\Apps\RootsMagic\ folder.  On your desktop and online. I am able to see my files with the numbers included.

When I click on Files>Save To Dropbox for Apps ... A new file is created in the Dropbox folder on my computer and in the folder of Dropbox.com with the following name

filename.rmgc

 

If I immediately click on Files>Save To Dropbox for Apps ... (again), a new file is created in the Dropbox folder on my computer and in the folder of Dropbox.com with the following name

filename (1).rmgc

 

Is that how it is supposed to work? I was expecting that the first file would be overwritten.

This is now how Dropbox works. It used to overwrite the earlier file.
