Data Backup With DropBox
Restoring Your Accounting Data
Its not possible to use the easyas restore facility if you are using DropBox, if you need to restore your data files after a data corruption then you need to do this manually
It is important to remember that DropBox looks at your files and as it does this it also looks at the dates of all the files to discover if a change has occurred. The problem with attempting a standard restore is that copying a previous older backup set into the dropbox area will not prompt dropbox to update the other dropbox folders on the other computers if they already have newer data files in them.. In fact the opposite can occur where DropBox will look at the older files (the ones you are attempting to restore) and simply override them with the newer corrupted files on the other pc or from within dropbox itself.
I suggest you view the video which talks about fixing a corruption with dropbox. This video will take you through deleting of the files from all the dropbox folders..
Once you have deleted all corrupted data files from all the DropBox Locations you can then restore you good set of data files to one of the locations and let DropBox update the rest.
