Dear Friends,

I just have connected to Dropbox and synced the data and it has deleted my local database. 

Any way of restoring to previous?

Many thanks

dani

There was an existing file in Dropbox? Or was it the first time?

For accessing the database my personal preference is http://sqlitebrowser.org/

For editing templates I like to use http://brackets.io/

Hi Marc, it was the first time I connected to Dropbox.
But no worries, I found a backup of December and now I am working through to reenter Jan-March.
Thank you anyway

I asked the question, not because of the loss of data itself, but if there had been a previous connection to Dropbox, the reason for the problem may be different than when it is a first connection. So I understand the very first attempt to connect to Dropbox, caused data loss. That is not good.

Can you check your Access Control settings? Which boxes are ticked?

When you go to Dropbox straight from your browser, so without TB, there should be a folder Apps - Theocbase which has a file called syncfile.json. Is it there?

Hi Marc,
yes on the first connection it made the 2 folders (Apps > Theocbase) and the 2 files (syncfile.json and access_control.json) where first created and then the data was synced which caused the erasing of all local data. thanks

How big is the syncfile.json file? How are your Access control settings?

The file is 5.7kb.
To access dropbox I simply accepted the handshake of dropbox.
Then ticked the checkbox to set the file on dropbox in the specific folder.
If you send me your email, I can send you a screenshot.
