But the syncing on the i Phone (haven't tested it on my i Pad or Windows box yet) is a concern. While One Drive is built into Windows 10 one of the other most widely used cloud storage solutions is Dropbox.This happened most recently when a video being shared between myself and several coworkers needed to be re-rendered and replaced.As the replacement was rendered, the file in the host’s Dropbox folder seemed fine, but the rest of us were caught in an infinite sync cycle in which nothing was actually being downloaded. I have a word document that I edit on either PC - to enable this I have the file stored in a Dropbox folder.If I right-click on the file and select "Browse on Dropbox website" I see that the latest file is correctly there.
This usually works fine - but sometimes I find that the file does not get updated on my windows7 PC. I edit the file on my Windows XP machine, then go to my Windows 7 PC and see that there is a previous, old, datestamp on the file and sure enough if I open up the file to have a look, I see that the latest edits are not included.
Surely there must be some option to say please update this file - but can find no such thing. I should point out that my wireless internet connection is a little intermittent - could this have caused some glitch?
By the way I do not leave the old file open in word on my Windows-7 PC as I can well imagine that would cause trouble.
I have to end task it and/or reboot the phone for it to actually sync.
So at least I have a working solution even after I do what caused issues before (rebooting).
