In Topic: Can't back up to Google Drive

20 May 2019 - 03:23 AM

I have never used the google backup function in fact I did not know it existed until this post. But I do this to backup my RM7 file to Google Drive.


When you install the Google Drive app it puts a Google Drive Folder/Directory on your hard drive. So in RM7's Program Options > Folders in the Default Folders make the Backup files point to your Google Drive Folder/Directory. Mine looks like this  Z:\RWells Data\Google Drive\RM7 Backup.



I am on a Mac but with this setup every time I EXIT the program I get the prompt to backup with the Backup this database selected I press the enter key. I press the enter key again and away it goes. Then Google Drive dose it's thing. Since I exit the program multi times a day I will also press the enter key again to override the old backup after the first time for the day. So I have a backup for each day that I use RM7. At the end of the month I usually delete some of the older backups.


No need to manually do anything except the exit key and enter key. And you have to do something else to prevent it from going to Google Drive so less likely to forget.


Hope this helps some. I am concerned about offering help as it may not be exactly what the original poster wanted and the tone of the post was somewhat threatening.

In Topic: How are you using Shared Facts?

20 September 2018 - 04:01 PM

I use shared events with county creation dates. This allows me to quickly see when a county was changed and if I have events located in the wrong county.


I really don't care if they transfer or not as they are mostly just used for quick checks.


Kentucky created counties like rabbits so ...
