No: you can't split Firebird database into a 'file per table'.

But your approach makes no sense. I am not sure what you mean with
versioning, but if you mean for safe keeping: make backups regularly. If
you are talking about the versioning the database structure: use a tool
like Liquibase.

Using a tool like dropbox with your database might even be a good way to
corrupt your database, especially if you access the dropbox folder from
multiple computers.
