Hi, I’ve only just discovered that the long-standing location for my Databases, the Documents folder, is now cloud-based following OS Sierra changes. This has me caused some problems.
Is there an easy was for me to rebuild or relocate my Databases to a non-cloud linked folder on my Mac without causing major problems?
Close the databases in DEVONthink, then move the .dtBase2 files to a folder in your Home directory, like ~/Databases.
Is it possible to have it on a different harddisc, than the Home directory?
Yes indeed! However, it will obviously require the external drive to be connected to access the databases.
I’m fine with that
As on my MacPro (3 harddiscs for data, one SSD with the OS) there is a automatical backup-scenario for the data-harddiscs, I would copy the db manually to one of them.
With the “Open db”-command DT will know the new place of the db? No symlinks?
No. Just double-click the databases in the new location to open them.
