As far as I can tell...
MacOS points to an opvault on Dropbox.
iOS (iPad) also points to an opvault on Dropbox
I assume they are both the same Dbox accounts
1PW on MacOS looks to a folder on a RAID array for the opvault file.
Due to ongoing issues with the said flakey RAID array that occasionally drops out for a while when it's having a bad hair day, Dropbox replicated itself on the Mac's local Home drive. 1PW looks for a physical user-defined folder location for Dropbox rather than a logical location defined by Dropbox. So if it looked for whatever Dropbox considers to be the actual live folder location, it'd find the right one each time.
However, in my scenario, Dropbox has quietly copied and relocated the opvault file. 1PW is oblivious to the new location Dropbox has defined as the live folder and merrily continues to update the opvault file which is no longer being synced.
So... how to resolve this?
I would like to leave the local Home folder as the 'live' Dropbox folder as the RAID isn't going to improve anytime soon. Life is just too short.
I can change 1PW to look at the Home folder version but... I'd like to merge the two versions first so I don't loose changes. The RAID version is larger than the Home version.
How can I merge the two please?
