Today I got missing manifest messages on two iOS devices. No other indications of any problems. I read up and did thorough verifications and ended up cleaning the databases…which took a looooong time to resync across two computers and three iDevices. The manifest messages have all gone so I think I am good again.
I believe the cause of this was an experiment I started yesterday dual booting two OSes installed in different volumes on the same computer, both with DEVONthink 3 set up using Dropbox sync store. I suspect I rebooted to the other volume before the first one had finished syncing, and then back again. The kind of message in the Thorough Verification was “broken or not yet complete data structure”.
Does this sound a likely cause? If so I expect you will advise that dual booting is dangerous, but before giving up on it is there a way I could confirm syncing was complete in the future before rebooting?
Could/should I close the databases before rebooting to the other volume?
I have posted this in the DTTG section because that is where I saw the manifest messages, but it maybe a DT3 issue.
