    I don't think my question has been answered. Can I use Microsoft OneDrive
    to synchronise to Android app instead of DropBox?

    Hi Bob

    No you can't use Microsoft OneDrive to synchronise to Android app instead of Dropbox
    You should use a free Dropbox account.
    You can only use OneDrive, Google Drive, Box, Pdrive etc to sync between computers

    Hope this helps

    Sorry, but I’ve another query if you don’t mind.

    Having just got a Windows Surface Go Tablet in addition to a very old
    Windows laptop, I now have 4 devices including Android phone and old
    Android tablet. Dropbox only allows 3 devices in total on the free version,
    and I have no need of Dropbox beyond this.

    Can I use OneDrive to synchronise the two Windows devices and then Dropbox
    for one Windows device and both Androids?

    Or do I have to use Dropbox for everything, in which case I’ll very
    reluctantly have to drop the old Android tablet?

    Thank you for your help

    You need to choose one method. You can’t practically swap between sync methods.

    Hi Bob

    The Dropbox restrictions maybe not as bad as they first sound.

    The limit of 3 devices running Dropbox applications with a free account applies to the devices that can be connected to a Dropbox product itself, via official Dropbox applications, such as the official Dropbox desktop client or mobile applications.

    If your computers are using Dropbox Folder as a syncing method for Moneydance then as you have to have Dropbox Client installed, this count towards the limit. However, if you use Dropbox Connection and don’t have Dropbox Client installed, this does not count towards the limit. This limit does not apply to third party apps that connect to Dropbox via the Dropbox API. This includes the Dropbox Application Program Interface that is embedded in Moneydance mobile. Your mobile devices would only count towards the limit if you had Dropbox official app installed on your mobile devices for another reason.
    You can also mix Moneydance Dropbox sync Methods on computers, say 3 computers using Dropbox Folder and any additional computers using Dropbox Connection. Another approach is to set up another Dropbox account under a different email address and set up the Moneydance folder “.moneydancesync” as a shared folder between the two accounts.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Derek,

    I'm struggling to get my head round it, but that looks like a solution if I
    can work it all out.

    Cheers
