Moving a remote database

Just a quick question. Formatting a buggy laptop that has a ACT v18 RDB. I have the main on a desktop at home. Should I move the RDB or just create a new RDB from the main?

Re: Moving a remote database

Hi there, if you have the ability to sync your remote one last time so the main database is up to date, then it may be easier to simply create a new remote after that.

 

If you would like to remove the remote database, the below article should help:
