Hi there - first time poster, so go easy on me
I’ve just started many DT trial and have been playing around with bringing in a number of files that I’ve traditionally stored on a NAS.
However, it feels like I’ve only brought in a small amount of docs so far and I’ve got a database that is already 11GB. So I guess I have a few questions, which are going to be pretty basic but I’m just trying to get a better understanding of how DT works and how to make it best work for me:
- How does DT actually ingest files in relation to the size of the database? Obviously the more I ingest, the larger the database will be, but the DB size is still smaller than the files are taking up. So is this just a massively efficient compression engine, or is DT not actually talking in the whole file?
- Where do people tend to store their DB’s? Do you put on a local HD or are you tending to store it in a Cloud solution? I’m just thinking that if I put my entire archive into DT, then it could potentially take up a significant proportion of my MacBook’s HD.
- Is there a drop in service if a DB is on a cloud?
Thanks a lot in advance
