Fist off, I know I can only work on one computer at a time. Ok, now my data is in my OneDrive cloud location. How do I setup both computers to one data location? Thank You

Elements can't access files on the "Cloud", only files stored on a disk (internal or external) on your physical computer.

So, "Cloud" solutions like OneDrive, Dropbox or Google provide the service to synchronize the files on their 'Cloud' location with a copy of those files in a dedicated folder on your computer. You have to set your OneDrive Account to 'sync" the files in the 'Cloud' to your two computers.

 

However, there is no easy way to share your organizer catalog between two computers, even if you place the catalog folder in the OneDrive dedicated folder. The catalog copy would keep the links to the original computer and all your files would be 'missing' or 'disconnected' seen from the other computer.

 

Also, don't believe that you can store your image files only in the Cloud to save space on your local drive. You have only 'synced' image files copies.

 

The solution to share both the files and the catalog between two computers is to store both on an external drive you plug in alternatively to each computer.
