Deleting Data

Curious to learn about deleting data and the size of the db after first importing a large amount of data and then deleting It?

I am testing ways of working in DTPO right now. I trashed my indexed files and imported a large amount of files from Documents. I can’t say for 100% certainty It was this new very large addition that caused my disk to be so large, but It became too large for my usual backup/clone to a second drive.

I deleted the added files, but the size of the disk has not changed. Are there hidden flags I need to clear to return DTPO to Its pre-ingested weight?


The Trash is a location in a database. You need to empty the Trash in DEVONthink, which sends the files to the System Trash.
