Storing accounting datafiles in Dropbox sounds like the perfect “online” or “live” solution, but there are problems at times. Despite advice that is positive via Dropbox (https://www.dropboxforum.com/hc/communities/public/questions/202157455-Quickbooks-Pro-2013-Can-I-work-on-files-off-of-Dropbox–) some of our clients have tried having their MYOB file in Dropbox, but wonder why it has issues. Please note the following –
- Dropbox is not recommended by the Reckon or MYOB support recommendations
- The continue uploading to cloud interferes with normal functioning:
- Slows the datafile;
- Can corrupt transactions while saving/uploading;
- Can result in error messages referring to conflicts in the saving process.
The recommendation is DO NOT try it! It can be more trouble than it is worth!
