I had to re install folder sync and remind myself..
In folder sync, select account then tap plus sign to see cloud options. Select Google drive and complete authorisation... Then choose the remote folder in gd, and select one way sync ,= mirror, to a local folder

Other file managers work similarly. You can also copy over LAN. By sharing your source calibre library to LAN then mirror from that ( not TO that)

Try it ,ask again if stuck

i tried to install a sync but i got stuck i n the authorisation, normally it has to go back to the app but that doesn't happen

try a different file manager app, if there's an issue with GD and file sync auth
or sync instead to the local copy of your GD on your PC- just make that a sharad folder and get it over LAN

Hi I have all my books on Gdrive like you explained above:
alternatively, if you can browse to your google drive from within Moon ( files tab) it will open the books directly from there, one at a time , as you read them. All it will store locally is a database of covers, book details, read progress etc. it will not need to make copies of the actual book files
Now I have downloaded the app Autosync for Google Drive, but I don't know exactly which files to pair to share my notes, highlights on all devices?
can you explain this in a very simple and step by step way?
Thanks

in moon preferences find and tick the option to backup sync to cloud. it will need a one time auth for cloud access
so that on each device
then you will see a brief sync to cloud pip up as you exit a book
in cloud, you can see the files in apps/moonreader/cache.... 2 per book

i dont use that autosync app , know nothing about it, moon does not need it

Ok I understand
I keep my books in GDrive in 1 big file, do I choose the same file in Moon to sync with?

all you choose in Moon is which cloud to sync to : dropbox or Google drive.
that is on main preferences screen with no book open- maybe within "backup"
you have no say in the details of how it does it.

I can tell you that in my case it uses this location
Dropbox\Apps\Books\.Moon+\Cache
and writes 2 files per book:
file name.epub.an
file name.epub.po
one is for notes and annotations, the other is for last page read

if the needed subfolders do not exist, then moon creates them

and then you can open from G Drive from whatever device with the same annotations and from the same position?
it seems to me that each device holds his own memory and position, there is no syncing

It is much simpler than you think
Once you have, once per device, enabled sync to cloud in moon, then just use moon as normal.
Assuming you are online then each time you resume a book it checks and Says something like newer position available, use it? Y/N
And bookmarks etc are updated automatically....


....ok so my instructions were not perfect. I just opened moon and checked. Do this.

With a book open to to misc options. Scroll down. You should see tick boxes for
Sync reading position via Dropbox
Sync reading position via Google drive

Tick the one you want
Do that on each device
It applies to all books, not just to the one you have open
.
I know that bookmarks get synced, I don't use notes but I assume they get synced also

( The backup and restore options on the main preferences, with no book open, are for the apps configuration.
I use that to copy my preferences easily to a new device.)

Experiment a little, ask again of stuck.
Unfortunately there is no user manual.
