Storyline File Storage Locations

Dec 19, 2014

I've been reading that Storyline files should be stored on a local hard drive and not in a cloud service or USB memory stick because of possible file corruption. Would an external hard drive give the same problems?

I work between a desktop and laptop, both of which's storage is mapped to our network servers - would y'all consider this a cloud service where I can possibly have problems?

Hi Lydia,

Yes, you'll want to steer clear of network drives, shared drives, USBs or external drives and work locally as described here. I know a number of users mention utilizing Dropbox, as it's a local install and then you can save your files there - but since there is the possibility of file syncing and updating in Dropbox, I can say for certainty that it won't cause problems. If you're needing to transfer files between two different computers, you'll want to follow along with the steps here.
