I was searching in Eaglefiler for a particular file that I use occasionally and couldn’t find it. Then I discovered it was because that file was stored in a Dropbox folder so that it could be accessed by another computer.
Well, I wanted to index those files in that dropbox folder so that in the future Eaglefiler would find them. So, I made a folder in the library called dropbox and then I dragged and dropped the contents of my original dropbox folders into that Eaglefiler folder. It copied them and did its thing in indexing the files.
But then I got to thinking that I didn’t really want to keep a few of my dropbox folders in Eaglefiler but I became confused as to how Eagle filer is going to handle those dropbox folders. Obviously I’m not going to delete the original files contained in the dropbox folders. And obviously if I access a file that was copied into the dropbox folder within Eaglefiler then I’m not really modifying that file in the dropbox folder but only the copied file from the dropbox folder.
So, does anyone have any ideas as to how best to handle adding files to my Eaglefiler library that need to be accessible to other computers who have dropbox installed on their machines and who are accessing my dropbox folder?
