I have wasted nearly two entire days trying to resolve this…
I have zipped DT and moved it out of Applications folder.
I copied DT database to Library/Application Support/Devonthink Pro as I was instructed. (I had my old dB on another drive partition where I keep all my databases.)
The things got really funky!!!
I go to file and open, select the dB in the appropriate place. And I click open. But…DTP starts the verify process and then tries to import the file and in fact it does. Well one time was ok. but my dB is 9.4Gb of photos, scanned files, etc. The next time it tries to do the same thing. But this is not the point, though it confuses me why the program would try to import rather than access and open. It also sucks up something of the same order of additional drive space --the remainder of my drive. Then things get really ugly and the system locks up so that I have to crash the system as I can’t close the app down–which seeps into other apps freezing and not closing even when force quitting.
There should be a simple procedure to convert the old product’s database to Pro without all this mess. I’ve read other people’s problems but my situation seems worse than other people’s. This is the opposite of what the program is supposed to help me do–be more PRODUCTIVE!
