I’ve been trying to use an encrypted database with DEVONthink (3.5.1) and it’s been getting regularly closed with messages like:
07:06:55: /Volumes/Test Encrypted Database/Test Encrypted Database.dtBase2 Database volume was unexpectedly unmounted, the database will be closed.
After looking into the problem for a while, I believe this is coinciding with my Time Machine backup running. The Time Machine backup is to a network volume on a Synology box, so it works like an Apple Time Capsule backup, which may be relevant (as that process itself mounts a disk image across the network.)
It seems to be reproducible: I just followed these two steps:
- Create new encrypted database in DEVONthink
- Start Time Machine backup by choosing “Back Up Now” from Time Machine’s menubar icon
…and the encrypted database was unexpectedly unmounted within the first minute of the backup starting. It seems to coincide exactly with the moment Time Machine starts “Preparing Backup” after finding and mounting the network Time Machine volume.
Has anyone else seen this? I’d like to use an encrypted database, but this is cramping my style somewhat…
