Suggestions for File Sharing

Recommended Posts

I'm relatively new to Chief Architect and I'd like to be able to edit my plans from different locations. Are there any specific file sharing software that the more experienced users would recommend? I was considering using Dropbox.

Ditto.  I put both the Chief Data Folder and my Chief Projects in Dropbox.

I was paying for the 1TB Dropbox and the 2TB iCloud.  Now I just use iCloud. 

 

- Dropbox seems the fastest.  

- iCloud has wider Apple integration at the app level. 

- Box.com is okay and highly secure but they are resource hogs. 

- One drive is Microsoft. I’ve never tried them. 

- Google drive.....well they’ll read all your files but they are free I think.

I prefer One Drive as there are so many other services they offer. Also if you use office and / or excel the files operate seamlessly from desktop application to online. Not so with google products.

I didn’t know I could save CA files on the ICLOUD without some limitations.

Yep.  I realized that I was all over the place with cloud accounts, both free and paid.  

 

I copied everything to iCloud from Dropbox and worked that way for about a week.  iCloud works fine.  Not as fast at syncing as Dropbox, but it does sync everything to my phone if I want to access it.  "It just works".......iCloud Drive\Documents\(1) para-CAD\_Clients

 

I also use Evernote to keep all the project data and completed PDFs in.  That way I have quick access to a couple of different sources to share files from if I'm on the road or away from my computer.  One Note probably works the same.  If I was Windows based, I might try the One Drive/One Note combination.
