Is it possible to restore a QDF windows desktop file from the web app? Just trying to reduce QDF files laying around in the wild. If I could restore from the web app I could just use that. If you don't have it, A great feature to have would it be.

    Sorry, but no can do. The data in the QWeb is but a small subset of a QDF, and isn't sufficient for rebuilding a QDF.

    BUT you only need 1 QDF file (per user), so why do you have many? Perhaps are they actually QDF-Backup files … which should be on an external device, such as a USB drive and not your primary drive. If your backup files are on the same drive as your QDF file, and that drive fails, then your SOL

    FYI - the Mobile App and the QWeb browser interface are merely selected subset "views" of your data -

    Thanks for the update. I do back up the files in multiple ways right now. I was hoping to cull that back a bit by using webapp as an alternate line of defense.
