Moving DEVONthink 3 to a new computer - fresh install of everything

Is this in response to me? I don’t really have a bug, I just need to know how to properly update and move my databases. :slight_smile:

Or should I still rise a support ticket for that? If so, from the DT2 installation or from the DT3 one?

Yes to you.
Yes please open a ticket.
From the newer Mac is fine.

Thanks so much to the DEVONthink team. Just moved my databases from an older iMac to a new MacBook and it worked like a charm with the steps described by @BLUEFROG.

Awesome :slight_smile: :smile:

Woohoo! Glad to hear it. :relaxed:

I want to thank @robbchadwick and all who chimed in here. Very informative. I plan to do exactly what Rob did in a month or so (clean install without Migration Assistant.)

The recent entry by @manfred9 tells me these steps still work two years later, but if something should be considered now that didn’t apply then, I’d love to know before I take on this doozie. Thanks!

Unless you’re indexing files, a migration is a pretty simple matter actually.

Check out the Help > Tutorials > Migrate DEVONthink for info.
