Merging Databases

Is there any recent technique for merging databases? I found an old post that encourages exporting existing databases to folders, then importing the folders to a new database. But whenever I do this, DT gets stuck and I have to force quit. Would be grateful for some advice.

When it gets stuck, how long are you letting it work? If this is a large amount of data, you need to be patient with it.

ah ok, didn’t realize that’s the case. there is some big data there. i’ll be more patient.

Indeed! An export is not only copy files out to the filesystem, but exporting metadata for potential import back into DEVONthink. That’s what those DEVONtech_storage files are.
