Are you considering adding Microsoft OneDrive to your cloud storage options? DropBox is fine, but the free version does not provide syncing from DropBox folder to desktop folder, so updates done from mobile devices do not get back to the desktop folder. Looks like you need to update to a paid version of DropBox to get this. With OneDrive, it is part of the free version

    Sorry, my Dropbox comments are inaccurate, everything works fine on all devices.

    Would still like to be able to set it up with OneDrive though. Is that being considered?

    Hi akoolwine,

    I had originally set up One Drive for use in syncing data files (as a shared folder). It proved problematic when the data file was opened on more than one machine.

    Duplication of certain files within the Moneydance data file were created.

    From what I've read on these forums, the duplication was due to the way that One Drive transfers data to and from the cloud. < paraphrasing >

    Once I switched to using Dropbox, everything synced as expected with no duplication even with the data file opened on multiple machines.

    Agree that DropBox works like a charm. I have a lot more "no cost space" on OneDrive, but it's really not and issue on DropBox, as the Moneydance files don't take up that much space.
