Thanks, that's a great idea. It looks like there are Dropbox API calls every two seconds continuously? That seems like a lot. Is that expected? Should I regenerate my Dropbox backup somehow to make that better?
Thanks, yes, turning off Dropbox sync certainly cuts off the traffic. I've done that for now and am just using rclone nightly to back up the Moneydance file and saving all the bandwidth. I guess I'm still curious if all this network activity is really necessary with the Dropbox connection turned on, but this is okay for my use case.
Dropbox syncing is not intended as a backup mechanism. It is a syncing mechanism for keeping multiple computer systems up to data as far as Moneydance data is concerned.
As such even if you have not made any updates the software must routinely poll the shared location in order to see if another user on another machine has made data updates that the local Moneydance instance needs to download and apply.
