Library size, disk space, cloud space, fair use, syncing (and LibreOffice add-in)
I decided to migrate from Citavi 5 to Citavi 6. I even converted all my placeholder files to the newer format. So I installed Citavi 6 and pointed it to my main project's .ctv5 file, which is 130MB big, and told it to convert it to a cloud project. It tried, but gave an error message saying something like "not enough free space". I have 10GB free in my disk, so I didn't quite understand.
Looking for an answer here in the forum, I saw people mention a 5GB cloud storage limit, which I then found explained at https://www1.citavi.com/sub/manual6/en/index.html?respect_fair_use.html as a fair use rule. I have +24GB of PDF files linked to my Citavi database, containing more than ten thousand articles, chapters and books. This is my whole digital library, with everything I have read or collected to read or to simply research (using Citavi's full text search, which is an asset). What exactly is expected from users like me which bought Citavi intending to have their full libraries synced?
(At https://www.citavi.com/en/terms-of-use, you say that you "understand that a research team has different needs than an undergraduate student", and I think there is also a difference from someone who started using Citavi one month ago e someone who has been investing time and energy to feed Citavi with all references, attachments, quotations, thoughts etc. since June 10 2013 (that's me BTW), specially considering that Citavi is not an open software in the sense of being easy to switch to other tools without information loss, because of formats etc.)
(I was talking about my own case only, but it made me think if you have studied and programmed a schedule of "fair use threshold" increase for all users. Have you? After all, I did have 5GB at some point, but with information overload, new research projects etc., we gather new materials, which add to the ones we had before, so it doesn't seem really reasonable to work with 5GB in 2019. But even if it is, and I just throw 75% of my library in the trash, I will still need to add more files to it tomorrow, and next week, and next month. So how much will be considered fair use by, say, 2020? And 2024? You get the idea here...)
Back to my error: was that "not enough free space" error related to this fair use limitation?
Or was it related to my local disk free space?
If the latter, how much free space do I need to provide Citavi 6 with for it to convert my local .ctv5 project to a cloud project?
Also, by "syncing", you do mean that I have my full library (with attachments) available both locally and in the cloud, right? No other scenario would justify the use of the word "sync", but it's not absurd to check these things before getting even deeper and more dependent on Citavi.
PS.: BTW when is the LibreOffice add-in coming?
