    Moving data to laptop

    I'm going on holidays and want to continue working on my campaign on my laptop. I've read that i should copy the data folder.

    So, just to be safe (dont want to mess things up): install FG on my laptop, use my key, activate modules, and copy/move the data folder to my laptop and back? Btw, do i need wifi?

    thx

    Yes, that will do it. You only need wifi for when you first activate and update. Only copy over the Data Directory files that you need - campaigns, tokens, portraits. The rest can get picked up with an Update.

    I would just copy the whole data folder, then do an update after the copy.

    Install the data directory to your Google drive or dropbox and then point both instances of FG at the data folder

    MODERATOR: For all those reading, do NOT do this.

    That's about the worst thing you can do. There have been numerous reports of loss of campaign data when doing this.
