Thought I understood that one should not have two TBX files open at the same time but now question if that is the case.
After my “Catch All” file began slowing down at about 100 MB in size, I split a portion into a second file in order to restore speed. Indeed, that did happen. However, the occasional items that are in one file and could be in the other are a plague.
I was quite certain somewhere in my long experience with Tinderbox, learned that having two files open at the same time caused file corruption. I recall experiencing such corruption. Today, however, I am unable to find in the Forum or aTbxRef any reference to this problem. I’m quite likely not searching on the phrase used by others.
I would be using both TBX files on the same iMac, both use the latest version of Tinderbox, v9.2.1. The files are stored on Dropbox but are never opened on more than one machine at a time - that clearly is a recipe for destruction.
The open question for me is: Can Tinderbox safely have more than one TBX file open on the same computer at the same time?
