Devonthink Pro with ScanSnap leaving "temp" files?

Hello all,

I registered DevonThink Pro Office not too long ago and also bought a ScanSnap scanner. I’ve been getting very comfortable using this combination to archive all of my documents.

Today I noticed something “odd”. My pictures folder was completely packed with .pdf files. Examination shows these are all .pdf files that were created for Devon and have since been imported.

Is it safe to delete these?

How can I set things up so that these temporary files are purged after the file shows up in the Devon inbox?


Yes, it’s safe to delete the original image files after they have been OCRed.

In DEVONthink Pro Office Preferences > OCR, check the option to move the original document to the Trash.

Thanks Bill.
