I would never give out that much information about our internal development workflow. Wink

But you do give out links to other people giving out that much information... Smile

It depends upon what you mean by "backup."

  1. The metadata (author name, publisher, title, etc) is supposed to sync. There have been a few users having issues with this recently... But I think it is isolated. Do you have a secondary computer with Logos installed? If so, you should see the metadata for those resources in the PBB tool. 
  2. The compiled files do not sync, nor do (obviously) the .docx files which reside outside of Logos. 
  3. If you backup only the compiled files, you will never be able to alter the personal books again (since you lost the .docx files)
  4. If you backup only the .docx files, you will have to recompile the personal books. 

In my mind, #3 is most serious. I use Dropbox to sync my .docx files. See this thread: http://community.logos.com/forums/t/37105.aspx?PageIndex=1 

If you want to not worry about having to recompile, see this thread: http://community.logos.com/forums/p/42036/313207.aspx#313207

Me too.  I locate my docx files in the dropbox folder on my computer and build them straight from there in the PBB.  They're also automatically synced to the cloud.  Seems to work well.

Alabama24,

I would like to implement this strategy for PC (Windows 7) in the Dropbox environment. How to?

Sorry, but I don't think I can be much help. Tongue Tied I am a mac only user, and I prefer to compile resources on each machine.

Peace, Paul!                      I've been thinking of Microsoft Sky Drive as an extra backup for some family pictures and various "critical" documents ...     ... including my many PB .docx files .....

                                   I own Microsoft Office so I do have some free space there (Sky Drive!) for storage  ...

                       I plan to get more serious about this and to "price" what increased storage would cost ...

May I ask, please, if drop box would be more or less "pricey" than Sky Drive?           Have you researched it?              Is each as reliable as the other?                        Are there other "cloud" storages that you might recommend ..

               Actually I'm getting a little tired of backing up on external hard drives of which I have three ...          *smile*

Milford - many f these services provide basic service for free, including Dropbox. Some utilize various promos to increase your service free as well. I currently have nearly 20 GB of free storage via Dropbox, which I have obtained over time.

Hi Milford,

I know you didn't ask me, but the Free version is 2GB. You may get another 100GB for basically $100 a yr. ($9.99/ mo). It gets high marks from PC magazine. And from what I see it is user friendly and very useful. It syncs to your other devices that have it on it and you can share and collaborate with others even if they don't have Dropbox downloaded on their device. Looks like a winner.

I also use dropbox currently.

By signing up through another member you (and I) will receive an extra 500mb of space.

My signup link


I currently have about 9.9gb, and would love to hit 20gb. Once you reach 20gb I think you are at the max you can have free...

But it still works really well and 20gb is not shabby. Its certainly more than I need for my PBB's

Dear Brother!             Sorry, I've already just signed up and am using it already, along with my free SkyDrive!         I truly regret that you won't benefit, being completely unaware that I could "boost" a brother or a sister, I moved into action.                      Peace and Joy to you Always!           *smile*

Edit:             I DO indeed thank you for posting!       I've learned something important from you!      Now I can sign up my Pastor and some of my family and pick up a few "free" benefits ....

Milford,

Are you aware if you take the tour and compete the 7 or 8 steps you get an extra 250MB ?

Thanks again, Beloved!            *smile*                       Peace to you!                         I'm finding out over and over again that old age doesn't automatically help one with "all the angles," eh???!!!     *smile*

            Thanks for the info, and I'll be eagerly watchful!

I tried that a few times unfortunately, you can sign up once per email address, per device.

So I was able to receive 500mb from my ipad, 500mb for my phone, 500mb for my laptop, 500mb for my desktop... Then my parents signed up (while I was at their house on their computers).

I am unaware if one could create a number of virtual machines, and sign up once from each? But that sounds like more work than I am up for during finals :)
