Create a new database from iCloud

Hi,

I have all my docs in my folder Documents in iCloud. Inside Documents I have several subdirectories arrange by topics. I create a database and when try to index a subdirectory Devonthink 3 index all content from Documents folder.

I need to create one DB for each of my subdirectories.

Thankyou for your help.

Screencaptures of what you’re tryng to index and what you’re seeing in DEVONthink could be helpful.

Hi BlueFrog,

Please see attached document. Inside I explain with screencaptures the problem.

Than you

Thanks!
Development may have something more to say on this, but it is not advisable to index content that exists only on the cloud. You should index local data.

What’s the path of the indexed Documents folder (see Info inspector in DEVONthink 3)?

Hi,

The path is Documents > 02 F&R > 03 Doc_Funcionalidad > Graficas F&R > Ejemplo calendario, and the other too.

Hi BlueFrog,

Let me try with a Time Machine Backup, this is in a external drive, I let yo know.

Regards.

That’s the location inside the database. The filesystem path (see Path field of Info inspector) might be useful too, thanks.

Hi,

This is the info from Info Inspector of one file:

Another file in 02 F&R is as follow:

I hope this information will be useful.

Regards.

Hi BlueFrog,

I copied all my documents in a external drive, I created a database and index all documents from a subdirectory and DT3 index all the files correctly. But…

i) All the documents are indexed without extension, I search in preferences and I didn´t see an option to activate or deactivated to hide extension file.

ii) In one subdirectory I have 147 documents:

But in the DB only have 120

All document are MS Word, Excel, and PDF.

Thank you for your help.

Regards
