When synching a relatively small DEVONthink Pro database with Dropbox, I keep getting a pop-up that reads “There are significant differences between the local database and the remote store”.
There are two buttons at the bottom of the pop-up, “OK” and “Cancel” with no explanation as to what either button actually does.
When “OK” is pressed the log reads:
"4:27:45 PM: Sync: CI on AV literature → @. (Dropbox) button_subscribe.png: Couldn’t retrieve the content for the record; the record may be incomplete or damaged.
Note that the file button_subscribe.png is never modified by me or any application on my Mac.
I keep getting this type of error, with different files. The first time I removed the synch store, including the folder in DropBox and re-instated Dropbox synching. This worked, but I shouldn’t have to do this repeatedly.
I have tried running “Repair and Verify” and even “Rebuild Database…” under the “Tools” menu, with no apparent affect.
How do I avoid/rectify this problem (without removing and recreating the Dropbox Synchronization)?
