For research notes, I maintain a system of subject folders and sub folders, just using the Mac Finder
I like the idea of using basic, universal file types that won’t force me into a software’s proprietary format (apparently one of the knocks on Evernote…)
I’m wondering if anyone attempts to maintain their own duplicate file system for storing documents alongside the DT Database ?
My reasoning for doing so would be (1) if I ever wanted to migrate to another app (although I know you can drag & drop from the DT interface) (2) If the database ever became corrupted and I couldn’t access backups (3) Any unforeseen issues with the software developer say 10 years from now etc.
I realize some of these are unlikely but I’m just trying to cover all of my bases before jumping in…
Does everyone normally just trash their original documents and put faith in the DT Database system ?
Thanks for any insights!
