Hi Everyone, I need a little help to get my global inbox going again. Here’s some information that may have lead to it not functioning any more.
- I’m on a mid 2015 macbook pro
- In at has been a 2 TB OWC ssd
- this ssd has been failing on me, but I managed to copy most of it (maybe partly damaged) to an external harddrive. This harddrive is the single drive built into a 4-drive external housing (Addonics). The Addonics housing is connected using esata cabling with a CalDigit TS2 Thunderbolt docking station.
This may sound complex, but all is working.
Due to the failing OWC 2TB ssd, I had to revert to the original 250 GB ssd.
Of course this brought big trouble but I managed to downsize my disks content to fit the much smaller 250 GB drive.
One of the side effects (that I did not expect or foresee) is that macOS (I’m on Mojave) also seems to take into account the /Applications/folder that is on the mounted external drive (when and if it is connected).
This made it such, that on the “older” copy of my macOS system DTPO v3 is installed and on the 250 GB DTPO v2 is installed. (Yes you guessed it right I still use a mix of v2 and v3 for various reasons)
Not being aware of this initially I was stumped at why at one time I would have v3 and at another time I would have v2. This was off course when the external disk was mounted or not.
Now recently my global INBOX, the one that is also visible in the Finder stopped auto-importing. So anything I save to the INBOX just stays there and is visible in the Finder but does not get imported into DTPO.
I can see that the respective INBOXes live in /users/erwin/Library/Application Support/DEVONthink 3/ and ˜/***/DEVONthink Pro 2/
What do I need to do to reenable auto-importing from the INBOX?
I’m still waiting (over 6 weeks now) for the warranty replacement SSD from OWC, so I guess this situation is not over within the next couple of days.
How can I change the global INBOX from either v2 to v3 and vice versa?
For what it’s worth: it seems a “read only” icon has established itself, but I don’t know why or how to make it “writable” again. Maybe that is the cause?
Thanks for understanding and helping out!
