I ran Very and Repair on a database and it reported 3 missing files. I looked in the log to see what they were and established that the files were present in the correct place ( don’t understand why they were missing, but I opened them in their native app and they were fine the missing ones seemed to be dupes).
I read a post here that said rebuilding the database would clear the missing files, so I did a rebuild. After which there were NO files or folders in the Database in DT. The size of the database in ~/Databases was still 6 GB, so I figured the data had not gone.
I then tried Repair and Verify and ended up with 4000 orphaned files.
Then I restored the database from Time Machine from an hour previous, and am back up and running…phew!
As a new user of DT3 this has really scared me. What might I have done wrong?
