Finding out local sync store location when unmounted


how do i find out the (expected) sync store location (file system path) of an unmounted local sync store?

I have the problem that my sync store location is greyed out (unmounted), and I don’t remember where on my drives (several networked) the expected, actual store lies. I cannot do a “Reveal in Finder” on the store because it is… unmounted.

How do I learn where DT expects that sync store to be?

Furthermore, is there a way to re-point DT to a different location of the sync store if e.g. I have to move it from a volume running out of space to a bigger one?

Thanks, Christian

Hi Christian,

if the SyncStore does not exist anymore on a hard drive but still shows in DevonThink you could do the following:

Sync a small database with this SyncStore. After this you can reveal it in Finder.

If you use the SyncStore in a network environment ie. with IP, the info button should show you the locations.

If you do not need this SyncStore anymore, you can just delete it and create a new one and let the database sync to the new SyncStore at the new destination.

Hope that helps.

My issue is that the location is unmounted file system-wise (the Sync Store itself still resides in its expected location). What I’d want to know (from DT) is the volume name (and path) where DT expects the sync store to be so that I can mount the respective volume. I don’t see a way to get at that vital info currently in DT.

Your solution works if the location was still mounted, and just the store itself (i.e. the data) was missing. This is however a different situation than I am asking about.
