Should I use Cubby to synchronize frequently changing files, like QuickBooks, Outlook, and other database files?

Trying to sync QuickBooks qbw? Outlook pst? We don't recommend using Cubby to synchronize frequently changing large files, like database files.

There are two big strikes against being sync-friendly: 
  • Constantly changing
  • Regularly being used by a parent application 
Two good examples are Outlook pst and QuickBooks qbw files. Both of these generally strike out as sync candidates.

Looking for a workaround?
Copy your pst or qbw to a new folder and turn it into a cubby. Leave the original version where it belongs and don’t try to make it into a cubby. You won’t have a perfect backup, but at least you’ll have a backup.
