Hi, DevonThink is my current go to solution for organizing research and administrative information. I have steadily accumulated a large collection of materials and use iCloud for synchronization between two desktops and two iOS devices with DevonThink to Go installed. Local databases are stored on an external drive. This works really well; however, as the size of databases grow so too the cache in ~/Library/MobileDocuments … /DevonThink (268.8 GB) and other hidden files such as Sync.log in Cloudy (10 GB??). Unfortunately, Apple’s design decision to make the local iCloud sync store non-relocatable to a different storage device means that a certain point one iCloud sync just become impossible to use further. I have 5GB of room left on the system drive. Part of the issue seems to be a set of database duplicates that cropped up over time in iCloud. So, I have two questions.
How can duplicate iCloud sync stores on local databases be safely identified and removed to eliminate needless duplication? The local databases only amount to 61 GB, a small fraction of the size of the storage sync for these databases on iCloud.
Why is the Sync.log file in Cloudy so large. 10GB seems enormously excessive. Is there a safe way to trim that file down?
