Instructions to Sync with Google Drive

Post by stpharm »

This is a simple step by step guide to get flawless sync with Google Drive

1. I have set as a path for my Windows PC version of mmex a SHARED Folder (i need to have a common db with my wife) within Google Drive .eg ....\Google Drive\_SHARED FOLDER\mmEX\mmEx.mmb
2. On Android phone navigate through the Google Drive app and find the Database : mmEx.mmb
3. Set it so it is available OFFLINE
4. Run the MMEX app on your phone , Through the main manu Choose Open Database - Other - Open From Drive - Choose the folder with the mmEx.mmb

If you wish to enter transactions from ANDROID device you should ALWAYS perform STEP 4 , BEFORE you start entering transactions AND ALWAYS HIT SYNCHRONISE after you FINISH
6. Make Sure Google Drive has Unrestricted Data Access OR MAKE SURE That drive has finished Uploading updated mmEx.mmb on Cloud

If you stick to those steps you will never have problem with syncing
