In one of my databases, I apparently have a link to another Mac that is frequently offline. When I open this database, I see 2-3 of these messages
I have no idea where this is being referenced; I would like to fix it as the messages are annoying. I have tried searching in the database for
imac NEAR local
and a number of other combinations. I have even attempted to brute force it with
find ~/Documents/Devonthink -type f -print0|xargs -0 grep pauls
from the command line. No luck finding the offender. Are there any suggestions for find this pesky link?
Did you e.g. index files/folders located on this server volume? Or does it contain sync stores or databases? You might also check the File > Recent Databases menu.
I’m trying to create a Smart Group to narrow down the possible culprits. I have the condition “Item is Indexed”, but how can I access the path to the item?
Path column and sort by it.
There is a Path column you can enable.
Yeah… what @pete31 just said
Great suggestion, but no smoking gun. They all point to local files beginning with
I have finally discovered the problem; it has nothing to do with DT directly. I run Trickster to keep track of recent files and there was a watched folder to my other Mac. I’m not sure how it got there; I most likely copied the config file to my laptop. I do have the DT → Trickster integration enabled.
Whenever DT tried to inform Trickster that I was looking at a file, Trickster woke up and attempted to access the missing network share. I have updated the Trickster watched folder to be the local folder, and no more problems with DT!
Thanks to everyone for the suggestions.
Thanks for the follow-up and diligence. That’s certainly not a direction I would have gone in assessing the issue
