iCloud Sync, Want to Perform Monthly Sync to Dropbox?

Community Member

I'm aware that in the past it was possible to sync to multiple accounts but that has since been removed due to it understandably cause issues for some people.

I happily automatically sync my 1Password data to iCloud and have no intention of changing that as it works really well for me but what I was considering doing was to temporarily switch from iCloud option to dropbox option, allowing that to sync then switching back to iCloud as normal.

Are there likely to be any technical issues using this method?

1Password Version: 6.6.4
Extension Version:
OS Version: macOS 10.12.4
Sync Type: iCloud

    @bistate_model_unread: A better option would be to keep using iCloud and simply copy a backup of your data somewhere safe periodically. Dropbox isn't a bad idea, but I'd encourage you to backup somewhere else as well since sync isn't the same as backup (if something is damaged or deleted, that will sync too!) Switching between sync methods would probably be okay, but it could result in some sync conflicts. And frankly copying a backup archive can be a lot less hassle anyway. Let me know what you think!
