Storing Library Folders in Cloud

Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone with experience storing their Library folders in a Cloud format can share some insight.  Planning to upgrade to X10 soon and believe that would be the way to go.  I run Chief from multiple locations, home office PC, Laptop and a second license with a remote helper.  Ideally I would be able to access the same Library files and only have to update a single location.  I have a OneDrive account with plenty of Cloud storage space.  Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Michael I would be interested in this also since I have someone working off site with my second license and would like to have the same library's the same for both instances. I storm my plans in Dropbox for both of us to have access but would like for both of us to have the same lib as well as the same everything

I use OneDrive

Cloud integration works well with a few caveats. To accomplish it you have to point your data folder to the cloud folder you wish to use as common. 

If you pause your sync the cloud service will take ownership of the library file and thus lock it. This will create a conflicted copy which the cloud service will still sync but with a tag that matches your computer's name.

So long as you are actively syncing a database file you can not switch to the new computer.

Best practice is that Computer 1 needs to upload the library, and computer 2 needs to download the library before swapping license

      how can I add custom notes to the library so that I can use in other layouts
    • By KTKArch
      (x11) When I open an object to fill (closed polyline etc) I have a standard list and the library option that takes me to Chief's library. It currently only shows that I have patterns of my own making in User Library. It also appears that I can no longer open 3rd party .pat files as I could in earlier versions. And finally, I cannot find a basic EARTH pattern in the defaults. So either I somehow purged some of the patterns or there isn't a default EARTH pattern. And how can I import my earlier .pat files? Not sure if this happened after installing x12 or if it is just this one file. Not using x11 but to finish out this project.

      Working in Windows 10 on a surface pro laptop. All updates for Chief Architect Home Designer Architectural 2020 have been installed. 
      The library keeps freezing me out of my plan when I type a 2nd search in the search bar of the library browser. I can see the cursor out of the plan window but can't do anything but save and close the program to start again. This is very annoying having to start and close the program continuously. Are there any fixes for this?

      I am looking to maximize the SSD (C:) I believe having the actual CA program on the C: drive will work faster so that is ok, but I would like to know what folders I could move to the D: drive.
       
      In the photo attached I have folders in the E: drive which I am going to move to D: as well. 
       
      Any suggestions?

      Many of these I have personally made or modified. Some of the content may have been created by others for which I will give credit. Many of the materials have free licensing, so no credit is needed. 
      Some of this content may slow down your program as I have a high powered machine and often times use complex and high resolution textures. I will try and give as much detail as possible. Use at your own peril!
       
      No but seriously dig through and enjoy, I've spent a good number of hours ensuring the quality of these symbols and will update them periodically- so CHECK BACK IN! and PLEASE GIVE A LIKE FOR THE POST OF ANY SYMBOL YOU LIKE, IT ENCOURAGES ME TO GO BACK AND REFINE/REDUCE/OPTIMIZE THAT SYMBOL. GIVE A DOWNVOTE AND IT'LL PROBABLY ENCOURAGE ME TO DO THE SAME THING...YOU'LL JUST BE A JERK FOR IT
