Hi Dave. If you are asking if you can run your Act! database from a Dropbox folder, the answer is no. Act! requires that Microsoft SQL is running on the machine that the database resides and it does not work with cloud synchronising tools like Dropbox for the same reson that it doesn't work with NAS drives. I can see your logic of using a shared folder that sync's, but the SQL Server would not cope with that eitehr at your end or at any of the other locations.
You are best off in my opinion, of either using the Act for Web offering or better, using a hosted solution and remote desktop or terminal services. then all your data and programs would be in one place and you would only have to maintain one set of programs and do one set of backups.
