I recently started to move more of my files into DT databases in an attempt to get more organised. Now I had the following happening:
DT crashed a few times and each times. So I reopened the application and receive a warning that databases seem to be in use by another version of DT. I continue because I only have one version and do a verification and repair. This leaves me with a group of orphaned files and missing files. As far as I could see they match more or less 1:1 (did not check them all, there are more than 300).
The damage done is moderate. I have 1-2 weeks old backups and can restore it (I was a bit lazy in connecting my time machine, my bad). So the incident definitely serves as a warning for a poor backup system and I will address it.
Apart from, I have got a few questions:
What is the recommended procedure if DT crashes to avoid such problems?
Is there a way to match orphaned files and missing files so they could be moved back in place in an automated fashion? I can do it manually, but it would be nice to use a script or something if somebody has one?
Is there a way to make a smart group/rule to detect missing files?
Thanks in advance!
