Dropbox

I use Dropbox as a backup for my Sage files and have never had a problem with the restore.

Do both machines have the same version of Sage installed?  Does the laptop run Windows XP?

Running Sage from a Dropbox folder.

Does this mean that you could have the working data files from Sage within a Dropbox folder and then access it also from home in the evenings and have live & accurate info ?

What would happen if two users tried to log in at the same time using single licence versions?  Would it still give the default sage error message or create a second file as per Dropbox's way of handling files?
