Yes, Kovid talked about this with another user losing files in a different thread yesterday.

I don't have any experience but I'll take him at his word.

At least with Dropbox it was easy to restore the file.

I'm betting there are rare cases when being off a version or two can screw things up like when changing between major versions. I always try to keep both my machines running the same version, better safe then sorry.

Good Luck.
