    Hi @Digital007,

    Sorry, you can only sync to one cloud service at a time for each vault. The possibilities are:

    • Primary vault : You can sync to either iCloud or Dropbox or Folder Sync but only one at a time.
    • Secondary vault. You can sync to either Dropbox or Folder Sync but only one at a time.

    Now the sync option you choose for your primary vault is separate from the choice for any secondary vaults you have. So it isn't that you have to use Dropbox for all (but it's easier) and using iCloud for your Primary doesn't mean you can't sync secondaries.

    What confuses it a little bit is you can enable Wi-Fi Sync at the same time. We do that because for people wanting to avoid cloud services you need a combination of Folder Sync and Wi-Fi Sync.

    It isn't a technical reason (in that it could be coded to sync to both at the same time) but the situations it allows could put a vault at risk and we want to avoid that at all costs.

    Now if I've misunderstood you at all please do correct me.

    Hi @Digital007,

    (I've used Bing's translator to see your message in English, so if I'm not understanding, please do let me know!)

    Thank you the answer, I can duplicate mo vault and having one for iCloud and one for Dropbox and be as well as I do it, thank you.

    It seems like you're talking about having two identical vaults and syncing one in iCloud and the other in Dropbox. Could you tell me a little bit more about why you want to do this? It is possible to do, but you will have to manually update the items in each vault when you make any changes, as items cannot stay in sync between more than one vault.

    If we know why you're wanting to use both iCloud and Dropbox, we might be able to think up some other options for you here.
