Welcome @epee

Crashes should be reported to our support ticket system.
Also, I am going to go ahead and guess you’re running DEVONthink To Go 2.7.9.

DEVONthink To Go 2 is now out of development. After eleven long and successful years, it was finally retired and replaced by its successor: DEVONthink To Go 3. Version 3 is not only more reliable and performant but also features many modern improvements, e.g., OCR, contextual menus, multiple windows, etc.

Please install version 3. When it launches it will copy the database from version 2 though you may have to add your sync locations again.


Thank you very much - solved the issue.

On the same topic - can I delete old version? When I try to delete I see a “threat” to remove all data.


You’re welcome and yes, delete it and its data.

DEVONthink To Go 3 does a safe migration of the data, copying it for its own use.
