Dropbox and Max UI, Scripts etc.

Has anyone used Dropbox to sync UI settings and scripts with Max seats?

Late response, but i use sugarsync to synchronyze between work and home station. Main advantage over dropbox is that it lets you chose whatever folder, you don't have to put everything in the dropbox folder.

Thanks for the reply.

It's a pity - I already have Dropbox and Gogoel drive... don't want to install a third option!

Ii there a way so that it only syncs one way - ie, my workstation sends it's updates to other machines, but they don't bother saving their settings?

Mmh i don't think so. You might want to check more advanced sync software like SyncBack then.

I'm very interested in this topic. Does anyone have any other suggestions or would like to share how much of their 3DS max ui / scripts / settings are synced across machines?

At the moment I sync only my main scripts on dropbox. these are scripts that run from the normal 'run script' folder (very easy to set up and generally max version independent). I was thinking of using Windows Junctions to share the Ui & script related folders of the Max installation to dropbox too but imagine that would cause problems?

I'm really, really interested in a way to sync (or at least easily backup and share) Custom toolbars, quad menus, scripts etc between different machines and even different versions of Max on the same machine (2012, 2014, etc).

If anyone has any further advice it would be much appreciated.
