Hello Doug:



I would like to be able to designate 2 save paths when taking images. One path would be the normal location in my laptop. The second location would be in "dropbox" on the cloud. While I can do either, it takes hackwork to do both, and intervention on my part. As a good engineer, I am lazy and want computers to do things like this.



What this would allow is for one to backup the compter with services like Carbonite. It would also allow the dropbox to be accessed anywhere one has an internet line. So I can work on images on a computer other than the one in the observatory.



I don't believe that services like Carbonite will backup things in dropbox, which reside on the Cloud.



While I know this is all scriptable or manual, It would be great to have this capability within Maxim.



Anyone else want to show support for this idea?





Thanks

Gary Walker

Gary,

Just save to drop box in the first place and your images will be on the

laptop and the cloud. If you need the images locally just copy the

folder in the DB (which is already on your laptop) to your local laptop

HD and your done.

If you do this outside of Maxim, it would be better and more uncoupled

IMHO. I'd recommend rsync: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rsync

Hello Tom

Thanks for you input. My first reaction was that Dropbox does not save to both the Cloud and to the local computer. That is what I was told. So I went out to the observatory, and pulled the internet cable and then fired up the computer. Low and behold, the files were on the local computer.



Apparently there is an operation that automatically sync's these folders between the local computer and the Cloud. Don't know how long before this happens, but it does.



So I retract the request for this new feature. It is not needed.

Gary,

As soon as data from any of your computers is placed in the dropbox it

is uploaded to the cloud as fast as your net connection allows. Once

uploaded it will sync all your computers you have connected to the net,

from here to Shanghai ;-)

If you have 10 comps on the net, you now have 10 copies of your images

plus a backup on the cloud.



Cool setup for sure,



Tom

Wonderful, really!! Be aware that this sort of auto-sync cloud storage is also

available as Google Drive.



Also, be aware that both DropBox and Google Drive save each version of a file if

you open, change, save. I'm unsure if MaxIm saves, then later opens, changes,

then saves again like for auto-calibration. In that case you would have two

versions of the file in the cloud. Just something to know.

It does not. There is only one save operation during camera operations.
