I am using a registered copy of DEVONthink Pro Office 2.0.1. I have built a database of about 40GB worth of eBooks. There are 2,833 groups, 6,428 HTML pages, 5,498 plain text files, 4,129 images, 12,012 PDFs, 155 Quicktime files and 12,883 Unknowns.
I can load the database (takes about 1 minute and a half on a MacBook Pro with a 2.5GHz CPU and 4GB of RAM). Once loaded, it is rather snappy to browse and search. But if I try to do a Verify & Repair or a Rebuild, after a while, DT simply crashes.
I don’t know why…
Of course, I could simply ignore that problem and continue to throw more stuff in the database and use it like nothing wrong is going on, but if I do that, I know I will someday regret it.
Should I split the database in smaller chunks? Is about 44,000 documents taking 40GB too much?
