Documents not updating date modified

I seem to have an odd sort of corruption in my data files.

When I modify RTF files using the Devonthink editor, the date modified updates correctly.

When I update files using Word, Pages, OmniOutliner, or even Bean (an RTF editor), then the date modified doesn’t change.

This seems to be true of all my database files, but not true when I created a new database.

I tried “verify and repair”, “Back up and Optimize”, and "Rebuild Database. All three ran without a problem, but the files still do not update properly.

Using Devonthink Pro 2.0.9 on an Imac running OS X 10.6.7.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Many Thanks

Could you explain what happened?

Open some of those files in Finder and check date modified there. If the date is the same as what DEVONthink reports, then your problem is in the filesystem, not in DEVONthink. If the date shown in Finder is correct, then it’s possibly not the filesystem – in that case, you might consider looking in the OS X Console for any errors that are logged when you update a file with an external error and corresponding directly with DEVONthink Support.
