The object is to relocate the data files from appdata/local/manager to Dropbox for external backup.
First, I created a Manager folder in Dropbox and then changed the path under About Manager. After changing the path and clicking Update the appdata-manager path still displayed but after a couple of Change/Update clicks the new dropbox-manager path displayed.
Second, I “moved” (not copied) the 4 files from appdata-manager to dropbox-manager and deleted the appdata-manager folder. On opening Manager, the business name doesn’t list - bugger.
Third, I re-created the appdata-manager folder and “copied” the 4 files to it, so that both appdata-manager and dropbox-manager folders were identical. Opened Manager and the business name was listed and opened normally - phew. I then closed Manager and inspected the folders and noted that both had had Date/Time stamp changes.
Fouth, I opened Manager and made a single data change and then closed Manager. On inspecting the folders this is the result:
appdata- manager - note the date/time stamp for the 4th file
dropbox-manager - note the date/time stamp for the 2nd file
Now I’m no IT person, but it would appear that part of the data file system is hardcoded to appdata-manager, based on the above - the business name, and other parts of the data file system follows the path created under About Manager.
I would have assumed that having been given the facility to change the data file path, that all relevant/related files would move together - otherwise what’s the point of the change path facility.
Using the normal Manager Backup to Dropbox, works OK
