Safe using Citavi with Onedrive Links
I have two literature folders on my onedrive, one unordered where I keep unadulterated copies of all PDFs, ebooks … named according to my Bibtexkeys. And a 2nd Folder for all the items which I have actually worked with, i.e. highlighted, made quotations from etc.
These are obviously synchronised etc., and both on my main work computer as well as the laptop Onedrive is set to save into the folder D:/Onedrive/ in order to ensure all file links are stable.
Now I would of course love to just copy Citavi into that folder and be done with it and have it synchronise too, but the Manual specifically discourages that due to the possibility of files being corrupted.
My main bibliography is bibtex which I manage with Jabref, and whilst I can see that Citavi is going to take care of this, I am not there yet. What I love is the keyword and category management of Citavi.
So having dabbled with the cloud functionality, this is not going to work for me, so a local file of some sort will be required. On the other hand I obviously do want to backup the Citavi File, and ideally into onedrive, and I do not the whole time want to switch my syncing on and off. What I am now thinking off is placing the file in one folder, and write a commandline Programlink (Dos level copy *.* to D:/Onedrive/Citavi_backup/ which I can use regularly.
Now here is the question, while having Citavi opened as program, can the file actually be copied ? Or do I all the time, e.g. every hour, need to literally close the program, then copy, and then open.
Now this would be really annoying, but as I mention, I just want to have one master folder structure for all my literature, or at most two, but not a separate one for Citavi somewhere in the cloud.
Any comments ?
