    No. And you should not attempt to locate your dataset in a cloud folder.

    The best you can do is:
    A) make auto backups to cloud folder
    B) sync your data to a cloud folder.

    What are you trying to achieve?

    You could do that by restoring one of the static backup files that you are saving to the cloud, as the above post suggests.

    The other option would be to set up syncing with other computers: You could then set up another computer to sync with that data.

    It is very important to not store your main active data file on the cloud in a file syncing system. We devised the above options because doing so often leads to file corruption, as the Moneydance data files are much more complex than most of those systems are used to dealing with.
