Thank you Jerry and all for your help.  I will just not use the copy to dropbox anymore.just copy the .rmgc master files and copy to the dropbox RM folder as instructed!  Whew!  RELIEF!


So the two .rmgb files in the dropbox folder should be deleted as they will never be used by the app. right?

Sorry I am confusing you all..I know you are trying to help me. Right now my top line says C:user\Me\documents\ and the folder where I back up my files to on the laptop. (I do not know how it was at one time reading sometime the dropbox file)

In this thread Renee said I cannot use the save to dropbox feature because I am using RM6 so I went to where I kept the back up files .rmgb file on the laptop and copied them and pasted them to the dropbox>apps> RM folder and it did not work so I went back and copied the master .rmgc files to that dropbox folder and it seemed to work.  Is this the correct way to update/sync from the laptop to the iphone with dropbox using rm ver 6?

Tom, how do you pause dropbox sync?  Just turn off the dropbox app or just right click on the icon and select to pause sync?  You mean to tell me when I open RM I am always on the dropbox file and not on the file that I on my laptop?  I am a bit confused and frightened of loosing my RM file?  I am not too good with the cloud..which cloud is dropbox saving my file on?  the only cloud I know of is my iphone cloud.

How do I have the program point to the file on the laptop and not the file on dropbox and only sync when I open dropbox?

Now when I open RM, the path is to my saved RM file on my laptop where yesterday it was to the dropbox file..I am very confused.

so I tried to do a back up from the laptop and browsed to the dropbox apps folder but it copies the rmgb file and that file is much smaller than the .rmgc file which is also listed in the dropbpx app files.  I went to the iphone and tried to sync and it will not..just loads the last file from yesterday.

Open for any detailed suggestions.

thank you Renee..sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.   I always see that permission error when I save to drop box, but when I go to the iphone, If I go to files on the bottom and select my family and refresh,  it does refresh and tells me I have new data and do I want to sync.  Don't understand why but if it works I don't have to. 

I am a bit technically lost but just noticed on the top of my RM6 program when I open the program is

c:\users\my name\dropbox\apps\rootsmagic\myfamily name.rmgc

Is that normal?
