I’m experiencing an issue where the files in an folder I import into DEVONthink seem to disappear. I couldn’t find any similar cases on the forum, and I’m wondering if anybody else has run into this issue.
I regularly import files into DEVONthink using an Apple Shortcut, which moves them directly to the DEVONthink Inbox in Finder. This process usually works well.
Recently, I created a folder named "OmniFocus 240128” and added several files to it on my desktop (including a database backup file… luckily I double backed it up.
Using my usual process, I imported this folder into DEVONthink’s Inbox. However, upon checking DEVONthink, the folder appears empty and grayed out, indicating no files inside.
- I’ve conducted global searches in DEVONthink, including searching by file names, tags, and using partial names with asterisks.
- Checked both DEVONthink and Finder trash bins – nothing from today found.
- The files are not in any hidden files or alternate locations in Finder.
- No relevant errors in DEVONthink’s Log.
- Has anyone experienced similar issues with files disappearing post-import?
- Could importing to the Inbox (via Finder) instead of directly into DEVONthink’s main window be causing this?
- Any suggestions on alternative methods to locate these missing files or prevent this issue in the future?
- Any insights or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I’m eager to make DEVONthink a central part of my workflow, but issues like this are concerning.
Thank you in advance for your help!
