I finally installed 2017 on my laptop because I have some clients that have fully committed to 2017, and the main reason is the project sharing over a cloud drive. This is only the 2nd file I've worked on. I had already clicked on "Save and Committ" so hopefully everything actually saved. When I clicked on Close and release VW crashed. When I reopened the file I got this error message. So WTF? Did my changes actually get saved to the master project file? Has anyone else had this issue or am I special?
I use VW Architect in a small design office where we are often project sharing with large files. Using iMacs and a Mac mini server, VW2017. 600MB connection to both server and internet. We've had a lot of problems with crashes when we keep the project file on our server when committing changes. We solved this by using dropbox instead. Although there is an added lag time going through the off-site dropbox server, we aren't getting the crashes as the committed changes happen on our local machine before being uploaded. We're thinking of implementing this throughout the office, but before we signup for dropbox business, etc. I wanted to ask if anyone else has reached a similar conclusion, or if anyone has experience of dropbox project sharing and could offer some pros and cons. Would appreciate any advice, thanks.
@JimWWe work in a remote location with unreliable internet, Dropbox and Google drive are not optimal because they have to sync to the cloud before the file is transferred over the LAN. Resilio sync is our preferred solution because it can operate wholly peer to peer, it is more flexible than google/dropbox as it allows any folder to be synced not just the one approved by google/dropbox and it is more cost effective. Could you support Resilio Sync please?
I seem to remember that working files automatically refreshed when opened in 2016, but in 2017 it seems like we have to manually refresh after opening to retrieve the latest changes from the working file. Does anyone know if there's a setting somewhere that addresses this? Otherwise, the 2017 Project Sharing improvements are pretty good.
