Restore DEVONThink database from ~/Library?

Hi all,

I’ve been using DEVONThink for a while, however this is my first post in the forums.

Last weekend I had to reinstall the OS (High Sierra) so I rsync-ed my home directory to my spare Mac.

How can I do to recover my old DEVONThink database?
One way I thought about it is to copy the old directories and files back to my current ~/Library, but there might be a better, cleaner way.


If you are referring to DEVONthink Personal, you’d need to transfer the ~/Library/Application Support/DEVONthink 2 folder.
