I downloaded the beta dropbox scripts, and successfully linked DEVONthink Pro Office to my dropbox account. A database was created in my dropbox folder and it is visible in the ‘sync’ tab.
However, when I try to sync it either from the source computer, or another computer linked to the same dropbox account, I get a series of messages (see screenshot), which won’t stop unless I quit DEVONthink.
The messages read “Databases located in cloud folders can’t be synchronized” which I thought was the point of the Dropbox integration.
Thanks for the quick reply, and sorry I wasn’t clear. The Dropbox/Apps/DEVONthink Packet Sync folder object, which I thought was a database, was created by DEVONthink, I did not create it. Still, it won’t sync across machines.
Sync occurs when two or more instances of DEVONthink that are configured with DEVONcloudy have their preferences set to look at a particular, named, sync store in a cloud service – such as Dropbox. It is DEVONthink/DEVONcloudy that manages sync, not the cloud service. You don’t need to be concerned with what Dropbox is doing in the middle – if you set up the process as shown in the detailed instructions then DEVONthink/DEVONcloudy will do what they need to do for you.
