Storyline courses saved in Dropbox
I have a whole series of Storyline courses saved in my Dropbox folder so I can access them from different locations. I notice that frequently when I am working on a file and want to save it I get a message saying I can't save it because it is being used by another process. I have figured out that this is likely the upload to Dropbox or my Carbonite backup service. This is a serious pain because I often can't save it for a while until that "service" finishes. Many times I can save it as another file name, but sometimes I still can't do that.
Is it a bad practice to keep the files in a cloud drive like Dropbox? Would it be better to just move it back to a local drive on my machine?
