I have recently upgraded to TMG 8.0. I also use a free program called dropbox to sync my laptop and desktop (www.dropbox.com). In this way I can work on a document on either computer and it syncs the changes to dropbox so they are updated on both the PC and laptop. Has anyone experience with this. Ideally I would like to access my TMG project file using both computers without recreating .sqz files and restoring. Ideally it might also be an option where my brother in the USA and I could co-jointly work the the same project. Any ideas?

This has been discussed extensively on the TMG Rootsweb mailing list. The consensus is that only TMG .sqz files should be used with Dropbox. See an explanation here. You can also search the TMG mailing list archives here for more discussions of Dropbox.
