Hi all, I'm currently working on a project that because of the current climate ( COV and his mates ) I need to be able to access remotely, I have been using Dropbox and directly opening the project from there , but, I'm sure there's a better way of doing this. Never used Github before ( although I do have an account ) would this be a more efficient / correct way of doing this ? Any advice would be good

If you have the possibility / you want to host it, you might go for Subversion as well (i.e. Tortoise)
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I found Tortoise OK, but would have a 'funny' at times when you tried to upload a new file rather than changes to the project (this bit the entire firm, not only me and lead to creation of the song 'Sqash The Tortise', think Elmer Fudd 'Kill de Wabbit'). I have noticed Dropbox has upgraded and changed it's interface, what & why?
I've been using TortoiseSVN and then TortoiseGit for the last 20 years, and can't recall any 'funny' issues caused by Tortoise itself: any problems we ever had were typically caused by the network, or the repository server.
The only problems we've ever had with 'uploading' a file (did you mean add to repository?) occurred when we tried to add very large files ( > 50 MB ) to a GIT repository. But that's not a Tortoise problem, it's a GIT problem: you have to use GitLFS for large files, and then you need to properly set up TortoiseGIT so it uses the correct command on push.
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
