Troubleshooting - Can I use Dropbox/Google Drive with QuickBooks & QODBC?

Problem Description:

Can I use Dropbox/Google Drive with QuickBooks & QODBC?

Solution:

No, You can't use Dropbox/Google Drive with QuickBooks & QODBC because Dropbox/Google Drive is NOT supported by QuickBooks and can cause data file corruption, no locking or sync takes place in QuickBooks data files unless you use the server version in QuickBooks Enterprise.

Also, The integrated application info is also saved in .SDS and .LGB file along with other user profile/registry places. As part of the integration, application details is stored in .SDS/.LGB file which is next to Company File, it could be possible that the file is changed on another machine and causing this issue. Dropbox or such services will sync it and may cause loss of integrated application certificate or may be marked as Not allowed and every time user will have to approve QODBC in QuickBooks 's integrated application window.
