I would appreciate some help getting sync to work the way I’d like, or to understand that my desired setup is impossible.
I have a Mac mini, MacBook Air, iPhone and iPad (running iOS 9.3). In general, the Mac mini is my main machine. All of my data exists there (backed up to the hilt, of course) and the MacBook Air and iOS devices are only extensions to access that data. I’m using the latest DevonTHINK 2.9 on my Macs and, once the newest version is released, DevonTHINK to Go on my iOS devices.
For various reasons, I’ve chosen to employ DevonTHINK to only index (not import) folders (containing many subfolders and files) on my Mac mini. Yesterday, I set up sync to my MacBook Air, but the results were unexpected. What I had hoped for was a copy/access of my Mac mini DevonTHINK index, on my MacBook Air. What I got was a copy, on my MacBook Air, of all of the indexed files on my Mac mini.
From what I’ve understood about the upcoming iOS release, DevonTHINK to Go will allow you access to a DevonTHINK index/DB, and will not download onto your iOS device all of the files referenced in that index.
How do I do the same for my MacBook Air? I don’t want a copy of the indexed files on my MacBook Air. I only want 1) the index, 2) with the option to retrieve the file from my Mac mini.
