Anyone use Dropbox and FNPRG programs?

Hello,

I was just wondering if anyone uses Dropbox (or any cloud solution) to manage a Catraxx (or any fnprg program) database from multiple computers? If so, how has your experience been?

Thanks

Yes, I am using CATraxx on two PCs and database is located in Dropbox folder. CATraxx locks the database file and Dropbox waits patiently till it's safe to sync. I haven't noticed any problems with this setup, but I am always make sure:

1) At the start of the session I wait till Dropbox has finished syncing before running CATraxx
2) I utilize the backup option in CATraxx settings (using different folder on my local drive) on each PC, so just in case Dropbox damages the database I will always be able to restore from most recent copy.

One PC is Windows 7, other is Ubuntu 16.04.
My database is now over 300 MB so it's not a small one.
