Dropbox is a
FREE online file and storage solution that will allow you to easily share the .evt file (created by the meet management software) and the .lif result files (created by the Eagle Eye software) between two or more computers. Sharing these files will allow auto-population of the track times from Eagle Eye into Hy-Tek (or other meet management software) via the GET TIMES feature.

1. On one computer, go to and choose SIGN UP.
2. CREATE an ACCOUNT and DOWNLOAD Dropbox as instructed.
3. On the second computer, go to and DOWNLOAD Dropbox again.
4. Use the SAME Dropbox ACCOUNT on both computers.
5. While both computers are CONNECTED to the INTERNET, go to My Computer and locate your Dropbox.

This is your shared file location for both the Eagle Eye and Hy-Tek computers. The image at right shows the option of creating a results folder).

6. Within the Eagle Eye Results Tab, SAVE a results file to the Dropbox folder. You need only map to this location once during set up.

7. Within the Meet Management (Hy-Tek, etc.) software, CHOOSE to direct the lynx.evt file to the Dropbox FOLDER. This will be the location the Meet Management software will receive the .lif results file generated by Eagle Eye. You need only map this location once during set up. BOTH computers can now share and access the same files.
