  Working with Dropbox

Advanced Diary has a full Dropbox support. You can save a copy of your database into Dropbox and then load it on another computer just with one mouse click!

All features to work with Dropbox are available under the "File - Dropbox" main menu item:




To use these functions you should have the Dropbox client application installed on your computer.



As alternate way, you can simply install Advanced Diary into Dropbox folder. In this case, when you complete your work and exit the program, all your information will be automatically synchronized with Dropbox cloud storage.

If you use same Dropbox account on another computer, please wait while Dropbox will complete synchronization with cloud storage before open Advanced Diary.


Save to Dropbox


If you never loaded or saved your current database in Dropbox, when you click this menu item, the dialog window "Save to Dropbox" will be shown:




In this window please select a path to "Dropbox" folder on your computer. File name in Dropbox folder will be inserted automatically, but you can change it, if necessary.

When you click "OK", your current database will be copied to Dropbox, and Advanced Diary will remember database file association with the file in Dropbox for the future use.




Advanced Diary will create the "...\Dropbox\Advanced Diary databases\" folder for your database files.

Please do not delete any files in this folder manually.


When you click the "Save to Dropbox" menu item next time, associated file will be copied to Dropbox without any confirmations.

When database file is copied, Dropbox will synchronize it with cloud storage and it can be loaded from other computers.


Load from Dropbox


If Advanced Diary does not have any information about associated files in Dropbox with the current database, or the path to Dropbox folder is incorrect (or empty), it will open the "Load from Dropbox" dialog window:




In this window you can set up a path to Dropbox folder on your computer and select one of available databases in this folder.

When you click "OK", Advanced Diary will replace current database with the selected file and  remember database file association with the file in Dropbox for the future use.


When you click the "Load from Dropbox" menu item next time, associated file will be loaded from Dropbox without any confirmations.



Be careful, when use this feature. Please note that your active database will be replaced with the database file from Dropbox folder.

Please make sure, that file in Dropbox is completely synchronized and up to date.


Remove from Dropbox


When you click this menu item, Advanced Diary will delete file, associated with active database, in Dropbox folder, and remove all associations for this file.


This menu item is disabled, if your active database does not have associated file in Dropbox folder.


Note: when you connected to a server, these functions are available for database administrator only.
