I recently transferred files from an iMac to iBook and then back again. I did this by copying the files Users/”my file”/Libraty/DEVONthink. However, on the iMac there are a large number of RTF files with size = “0”, and of course not data. How do I correct this?
Both of the DT programs in preferences for PDF & PS are set to “Link to originals” and “Use built-in pdftotext.
Maybe your user names on both machines are not the same? DEVONthink uses path names to reference the originals. So, when, for example, your user name on machine A is “eric” and on machine B is “manfred”, the pathnames work on one machine, but don’t on the other (/Users/eric/Library/… vs. /Users/manfred/Library/…).
We recommend to copy PDFs directly into the database. No such problems, just one database.
