There are a number of cloud-base storage applications on the market. These methods of storage are being used to both store and modify files. While the convenience of being able to edit a drawing file from any location that has an internet connection; opening these files directly stored in these locations have at times caused problems with consistency of data in MicroStation and other Bentley products and have even caused these programs to crash. What is Bentley's recommendation?
MicroStation is enabled to work with cloud-based storage repositories for the exchange of drawing files. ProjectWise 365 / ProjectWise Drive is the preferred (and certified) file exchange service for Bentley desktop products.
There has been some light testing of the following applications but do not officially “certify” these applications. Bentley Systems is not responsible for any loss of data accessed from these locations.
The following should be used at your own risk:
Bentley does understand that these cloud-based storage repositories are in use by some of our users. However, due to reasons beyond our control, we cannot certify these cloud-based storage repositories in the foreseeable future. Using these cloud-based storage repositories to store or edit files in conjunction with Bentley applications is being done at your risk.
