Safe to store database on cloud storage?

Post by blaat » Mon Sep 16, 2019 7:24 pm

Hi!

I'm planning to migrate from Mac Photos to XnView MP on a Mac with the current version of the OS installed. Luckily there is hardly any metada etc. beside the metadata in the photos itself.

For Mac Photos I have read multiple strong advices to not store the database on any cloud storage service; because of the structure it might cause corruption after syncing. Would this also apply to the XnView MP database? There will be only one system connecting to this onedrive.

Cheers,
Gertjan

No, just one user.
Storing in a cloud storage account is mainly for puposes of backup.
