Onedrive syncing with multiple computers

Hi Alex,

Dropboxsynchronisation works very well and seamlesly, but is it possible to make Onedrive multiple computer synchronisation? Your tutorial only works for Dropbox, which has 3 devices limit for simultaneous sharing, but I would need 4.

I can maually put pfd file in Onedrive folder, but then automatic synchronisation isn't possible, right?

Hello.

You don't have to install Dropbox app, so the limit is not applicable. The only thing you need is Dropbox account, you even don't have to tell account details to other people.

And you can put your file in OneDrive and work with it from several devices simultaneously. Read the instruction carefully.

Well I tried that, I downloaded pfd file with active Dropbox synchronisation, to my Android phone. I don't have Dropbox installed on it. Then I opened it with with Alzex app and checked if synchronisation is active. and it isn't. When I manually confirm active synchronisation in the app, it transfers me to Dropbox page, where I confirm access. But after a minute, automatic synchronisation is disabled again in the Alzex app.

This mean that file wasn't previously connected to Dropbox. Perhaps this is some other copy of the file. Try to set up sync again.

ok, I'll try connecting it to other Dropbox account first. Does it matter where should be first synchronisation, Android or windows?

ok, thank you. And of course last question, does it matter, where is pfd file located? Does it need to be in Dropbox folder?

No. You can store it locally, or put it in any cloud - it doesn't matter.
