We use a shared online folder (Dropbox) for our Land F/X installations and data.  We are considering moving to Microsoft OneDrive.  While reading your documentation for "Install Land F/X (Cloud Data) on a Shared Online Folder..."  Link here: https://www.landfx.com/kb/installation/landfx/item/3505-shared-online-folder.html   I came across "Important Notes:  We have seen issues with Microsoft OneDrive Sync in conjunction with Share Point."   Can you elaborate on this?  What issues have you seen?  Are they of particular concern?  Thanks for any feedback.

Hello Roband,
Historically, the issue has been that Land F/X needs real-time sync of the LandFX folder to function properly. OneDrive, by itself, has proven to do an adequate job of this, but when combined with Share Point, the Sync becomes unreliable. Further, we have had reports that there is no way to force a sync.

Thanks, Brian, for the explanation.  That's a bummer.  I may test it out using OneDrive by itself, but now I'm a little wary. 

 

If there are others out there with direct experience with this issue in practice, I'd love to hear your experiences.

Rob,

 

It is only in conjunction with Share Point that has the issue.  Do you have Share Point?

Jeremiah,

I'm somewhat unsure.  Right now I have a trial subscription to Office 365 Business Premium, which I plan on purchasing soon.  That plan includes both OneDrive and Sharepoint, but I'm not certain that OneDrive here is completely separate from Sharepoint or whether they are somehow integrated.  I have noticed that when I click the OneDrive application icon and select "View Online," the url includes the word "sharepoint."  On the surface, OneDrive appears to function very similarly to what I'm used to with Dropbox, but there may be something I'm not seeing.  I've planned on doing some more research on the Office 365 side of things, but have not yet had the time.
