I've been able to accumulate a large free dropbox account and use it to Sync my GIS databases across several different PC's. I've just started doing this and havent had any problems thus far. But I am getting some red flags of warning that are scaring me.
There seems to be several duplicate files in the GeoDatabases. Usually something like:
a00000017.gdbtable (GIS-HP duplicate Copy)
I can manually delete these files with no problem, but I have no idea why they are popping up.
Also, instead of removing file locks, Dropbox keeps saying it is renaming them. So when I release one lock and gain another, it renames the file instead of deleting it and creating a new one. Although it still does delete the lock file when I have fully disconnected from the GeoDatabase.
Like I said, I haven't had any issues so far, but I am worried about long term data corruption while using Dropbox.
Has anyone used Dropbox and found problems using it to sync GIS data?
