Files not being copied

I have DT 1.9.2 and I copied all the docs on a hard drive (or so i thought). when i went back i noticed that many folders still had images left in them. in the original drive but none in the DT database. I tried to sync the folder, then went and selected unrecognized file types and it brought some in but did not for the vast majority. Any suggestions or help. I wanted to get all the docs/images etc into DT and categorized then erase the drive so i can install a fresh copy of the os and get all my docs in one place.



Bob, I don’t know if this is relevant in your case, but DEVONthink Personal 1.x has a database limit of 10,000 images (including PDFs).

That limit has been removed in DEVONthink Personal 2.0 (a public beta was recently released). See

Also, of course, make certain that you have plenty of free hard drive space for database growth, as you are Import-capturing (copying to the database) files that you plan to erase from the other drive. (Index-captures would not be appropriate, as information would be lost to the database when those external files are deleted.)
