Windows 8 had to restart yesterday; for some reason, my study notes file rolled back to an earlier date.  I did not have file history turned on, so I do not know if it is possible to regain my lost work.

 

Can I change the location of my notes files to my Google Drive?  This would keep my notes backed up in case of a problem.  Would this also allow me to use the same notes files from different PCs?

within the e-Sword editor window hold CTRL then right click then open

 

If you can navigate to your google drive from there you can move the NOTX file there ande_sword will remember where you last opened a notx file

 

Note one drawback to this is esword will only read that location 


May God change our hearts to what the truth is

2Ti_2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Rom_9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

2Ti 2:24-25  And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

Here are instructions I made for using Editor notes on Drop Box. Google Drive is very similar and should work as well: http://www.biblesupp...-notes/?p=15402

thanks.  I tried this; I was able to open my study notes, but when I control-right click in the topics editor, no window pops up.

In fact, when I go into the Topics editor now, I can't even use it.  All the toolbar buttons are "grayed out", and I can't even get a cursor in the edit window.

In the help menu choose reset e-Sword settings if that does not work you may need to reinstall e-Sword

Create a new topic so that the window is not grayed out:

Yes, I accidentally discovered that.  It does seem to be working now.  Thanks!

I've made 2 short videos showing you how to sync e-sword to Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive. Unfortunately, Dropbox is no longer free or I would of made one for it. However, it should be very similar for Dropbox and other cloud storage systems.

 

Google Drive

 

OneDrive


 

---God’s Love is a Verb:---

John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son,

that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
