I have a qgis file, referring to a few shp files, saved on a google drive folder which is synced across two computers using different OS, one is Mac OS X, the other Windows 8. So, the absolute path of this qgis file on different operating systems is different. But the location of this qgis project file in relation to the shp files it refers to is the same.
E.g: On the Mac OS X computer, the locations of the project file and the shp file are:
On the Windows 8 computer, the locations of the project file and the shp file are:
I setup this qgis project file as using relative path, following the suggestion from the following post: relative path
This project works file in Mac OS X, even if I move the qgis file and the associated shp files to different directory.
However, I got a window popping out when opening it Windows 8, saying "Handle bad layers" and asking me to re-specify the locations of all the shp files again.
Isn't the relative path supposed to deal with this kind of situation?
May I ask how to solve this problem related to qgis project file saved in Google Drive folder that is synced across different operation systems?
