I’ve gotten myself into the following predicament:
My files are indexed, rather than imported (but it wasn’t always that way). Right now, they’re all in a certain set of folders on an old computer. As long as this computer is on the network, DevonThink can “see” them. (But slowly.)
I need to move all the files to folders (or a folder) on the new computer, where DT is. In fact, I’ve already done that – copied them over. But DT doesn’t “see” the local, copied files.
I think the problem is that I can’t “move” the files from one volume to another; I can only copy them. I believe (correct me if I’m wrong) that if it was a simple move, DT would be able to keep track of the changed path.
I can manually change the Path in the Show Info panel, and then everything’s fine. The problem is, I can’t do that for each of my thousand files.
I feel there must be a simple solution just beyond my grasp. Anyone know what it is?
