This is an update to some of the recent discussions I’ve been involved in on here about cloud solutions for RW.
Like many, I’d been using Dropbox for years to store the RW addons folder and my projects on. Sync’d across multiply machines I’d never had an issue, until recently.
After realising DP was no longer going to work I switched to OneDrive, which appeared to work well, albeit rather slow to sync files, but that I was able to live with. It had a tendency to want to “process” all files every now and then but I put this down to an early settling in process.
Sadly things didn’t improve over time, in fact they got worse. To the point my MBP which was included in the syncing often ended up useless, as it was either always processing or had out of date files.
It also introduced an issue with RW projects where links to resources were constantly getting broken, even with the “put assets in project” option thing ticked.
Yesterday I bit the bullet and scrapped Onedrive; I’ve now moved to iCloud.
So far, so good. It’s way faster to sync than either Onedrive or Dropbox, and the asset problem is gone.
Time will tell, but perhaps Apple have finally worked out how to do cloud storage.
