Synching Hands Between Computers

Postby bugeyebug » Fri Sep 14, 2012 4:10 pm

Hi,
I want to be able to synch my hands between my desktop and my laptop computers. I found this link on how to do it:
http://www.pokertracker.com/guides/PT4/ ... -computers

The problem is I'm kind of stuck on the concept of "sharing" the processed subdirectory to my dropbox directory. Specifically, the directions say:
"Just open PT4, go to File > Open User Data Folder, and then share the Processed folder with Dropbox."

How do I "share" the folder with Dropbox? Surely you don't mean move it there? How is this done?

Sorry for the seemingly dumb question, but I'm genuinely stymied.

I believe this page on the dropbox site explains it.

Hmmmm. I'm not sure that's really the type of "sharing" that the PT4 instructions are referring to. Dropbox directories can be "shared" with other Dropbox users, but I don't think that's what the instructions mean. I think.

Yes, you must set your Processed folder to be a directory inside of your Dropbox so that it will be synced to the Dropbox service.

Okay, sorry for being dense about this, but I want to make sure I don't screw up anything. Here's my understanding:

1) I need to create a new directory in DropBox. Call it Dropbox\PT4 Backup
2) Follow the steps from the aforementioned link I listed, above. Specifically: "..open PT4, go to File > Open User Data Folder, and then share the Processed folder with Dropbox." What this means is drag the "Processed" folder over to my new DropBox directory.
3) and then....? Somehow I have to be able to tell PT4 that this is the new location to put all the processed files, right? How do I do this?

Sorry for still being confused... but, well, I am.

To tell PT4 to move the processed files there change the directory listed for Processed Files in Configure --> Sites & Import Options --> Preferences. It's right at the top.
