*I’m not good at english, sorry about that and also thanks
I’m using onedrive and all my files are in it.
But videos and music are not in there because devonthink blog says don’t use devonthink as a junk drawer. but still my file is very big because i want to fusion between several scholarship.
so my research and school class files are in onedrive
Onedrive is mount in mac by app named cloudmounter
because i have only 256gb mac and actually can use under 40gb, cloudmounter does not mean OndDrive.app, it is different.
I use indexing file from cloudmounter
It run well. I can index all the file in onedrive
problem 1 : when i delete file on devonthink but not delete in mounted onedrive
so when i click ‘updated indexed item’, they(file before i delete) came back to devonthink
In this time only i can do is click ‘show in finder’ and delete file myself on cloudmount onedrive file on finder
problem 2 : When i create file on devonthink (such like rich text or group folder), it doesn’t sync at cloudmounter’s one drvie.
Well… create like such format and name like ‘New rich text’. I take a screenshot about it. (explain: i create a group folder and rename ‘test’ but on cloudmounter’s onedrive, folder’s name is just ‘New group’ , I want to rename and sync at cloudmounter as well.)
If you recommend me not to use cloudmounter, My situation is like this.
I’m student and I don’t have much money so i only choose one of them. > icloud 1tb or Onedrive 1tb & office 365 (dropbox is too expensive)
and i have m1 Macbook air. It have 256GB and can use under 40GB from now on
my files are total 200GB they include my school studies, my interest research.
(I study computer science and interest in movie, fashion, self growing, philosophy ect.)
Thanks for reading and your kindness.
I know that i have bad english. but i real want to use Devonthink for my creativity and knowledge.
I want to thank you about reading this and write comments about this write with strange english and Requirements.
Did you empty the trash and choose the option to delete indexed files on disk too? Otherwise only the reference is removed from the database when emptying the trash and File > Update Indexed Items indeed adds the file again.
Yes, i want to index the complete amount of data. Also i did it with cloudmounter. (How can i did it with cloudmounter without local storage? > First mount it when devonthink indexing and when storage is almost full, I quit devonthink and disconnect the mount. Second remount the onedrive with cloudmounter and start the devonthink. Then the devonthink indexing again the file which left behind)
Why i want to complete all the data.
I’m not trying to use devonthink as a junk drawer
Only i want is connect different studies.
(For example connect social science and art.)
To do this well, i think social science and art should be in the same devonthink database to search well.)
This is my folder. I want to know many things, so i classification things with DDC(Dewey Decimal Classification) that is why my file is very big. And it will be more bigger.
I buy devonthink because this reason.
But cloudmounter will be never work and Devonthink must requires local storage for the data. I will consider another way.
But i don’t want to give up using DDC.
Can you recommend another user’s examples?
And also using DDC with Devonthink?
Any reason why you are not importing these files? Do you really need to keep the files outside of DEVONthink for some other use? Importing is more secure/reliable than indexing especially with folders that are synced with external servers.
If you don’t need the data in OneDrive, why not get a sufficiently large portable hard drive and put your databases on it? They’re small and relatively inexpensive now. You can easily get a 2-4TB drive for a good price nowadays.
