Hello, Excuse my ignorance. My first few hours using EF.
(1) When EF imports files into a database, the original files (seem to) remain where they are. Does this mean that the EF file is a replicant, or does the import mean a second file? I’m already struggling with hard drive space, so understanding this is important to the way I use EF.
(2) Assuming that the ‘original’ file and that in EF are replicants, are they indelibly linked? In other words, if I moved or deleted the ‘original’ would this result in the erosion of the file in EF?
(3) I notice from the Forum and your Manual that you don’t advise people to use Smart Sync with Dropbox (or presumably similar options via iCloud, OneDrive, etc.). I suggest a simple workaround that may be useful for some: just add a Rich Text record with the name of the Dropbox (cloud) file and paste the shareable link inside that document. I realise that is a manual operation, but in the absence of hard drive space it may be a solution (even if it would involve considerable time).
Thx in advance, Daryl
