I am a long time user of devonthink. I started from Mac and now I am transitioning on a 95% of my work being done on my iphone/ipads (yes: big iOS fan).
I wanted to create a new database. For some reason I couldn’t find a way to import whole folders on iphone DTG, but no problem, I decided to go the traditional way of creating the database on my mac and then syncing it with my iOS devices.
Well, after more than 10hours of bonjour syncing and the sync has not completed yet. On the iphone storage it says that DTG occupies 23GB of storage. The database is 40GB, so I guess I will need several more hours.
It is needles to praise the positives of DTG and how important it is for my work, but there needs to be a faster way for the initial syncing.
Professionals (lawyers, doctors, scientists, etc) have big databases and there needs to be a faster way to achieve the first sync.
Would a cable sync be faster?
How about having the MacOS DT prepare the mobile database and then quickly upload it through a cable connection?
Anyway, I don’t know how this can be achieved but it shouldn’t take a day of syncing to sync a 40GB library over bonjour.
