Thanks Gordon. It's still working with both., and it's good to know I'm not alone :D Do your icons work properly, or do you have some missing?

When it's synching the system tray icon tells me it's doing so, although it's unhelpfully inexplicit about precisely what it's doiing, unlike Dropbox which provides a list of files being synched. Still undecided as to whether to keep the setup.


The key is that only the first few (3, 4, 5?) of the icons in registry order will ever be used, whichever software they belong to. The overall number doesn't matter. I preserve mine for something more important than syncing state, which is either taken care of or it isn't, and you shouldn't be trying to beat the clock or other warnings about this.

As far as running multiple syncing systems, I run about four. But -- each has its own root folder, with files/folders beneath that only involved with that one syncing system.

I wouldn't ever do else, as you would then be only inviting real trouble. The same trouble that Keith's intricate work removes, for multiple _clients_ running under the _same_ syncing arrangement.

Dropbox: it's reliable (!), it's free for any reasonable number of Scrivener files, and it's the one all the work Keith could reasonably do has been done with. It also has any number of nice-to-have features. I'd say, a no-brainer just to use it, and be glad?

Go

Sorry, which icons?
