Hi, how about having provisions to use a third party system like Owncloud? I do not like sharing my data with a commercial provider (i.e. Dropbox). I would much prefer having my data reside on my own server using Owncloud which essentially functions like Dropbox.

    I'm a fellow user.

    With Moneydance on the desktop/notebook it is possible to use any service which allows you to mount or attach locations to your local machine and use them like any other folder. This is what the Shared Folder option is allowing for.

    It is with mobile device where you need to use Dropbox as the mobile version of Moneydance is using the Dropbox API for data exchange rather than some folder location.

    Yes, that is correct. Perhaps I should have indicated in my original post that I do want connectivity with mobile devices; hence the suggestion to have provisions for Owncloud.

    Hi Pierre

    If your issue with Dropbox is security then remember Moneydance end to end encrypts the data its sync via Dropbox with the keys only held on your devices, not in the cloud.

    Hope this helps.
