DropBox for Backups

I am using DropBox for my backup files. It works great and I can manually back up the files easily. However, the backup function doesn't recognize Dropbox as a destination so I have to tell it  where  to go each day. Also, that means the automatic backup feature won't work at all for us. We are on ACT!  2009 (11.0) Version, Hotfix 1

Re: DropBox for Backups

You would tell drop box to monitor a file folder on your system and then back up to that location.  DO NOT try and backup the actual working ACT database files (ALF AND ADF) using this method.
