Moving to Google Drive

I'd like to move the HanDBase files on my Mac from users/my name/documents/HanDBase to my Google Drive location. I don't see a way to modify where these files are stored in the HanDBase for Mac application. Any suggestions?

Thanks for posting.

Are you using the stand alone version of HanDBase Desktop, or are you using the HanDBase Plus package to sync with a handheld?

If the first, you can simply move the files to a location of your choosing in Google Drive's sync directory and then manually browse to find the files for opening when you want to edit them in HanDBase Desktop.

If the latter, you can start by doing the same steps above and then in the sync configuration dialog, select the option to add a shared sync entry. When prompted you would select the first database from the folder in Google Drive. Repeat the process for each database.

When you sync, the databases on the handheld would then sync with the databases in the folder in the Drive sync directory.
