Hi,

To give me mobile flexibility I was wondering if I could save my library to Dropbox (cloud Storage) and use it instead of a portable hard drive which I will have to carry around if I'm change location.

Thanks

    1) I do not think, it would be possible to install Kontakt Content/Expansions on Dropbox or other cloud storage. NI blocks installation even on NAS.

    2) It would work rather poorly if installed on cloud. Unless we speak about some small libraries.

    3) You cannot just take portable disc and use it on any computer. SW has to be installed/authorised on each computer.

    I would say no, though I never tried it or thought about it. Just get yourself one of those T7 Samsung drives, they're not expensive, are really fast and not bigger than a credit card.
