Sync only one folder on Mac


I tried to search for a solution but did not manage any.

I have one folder on my iMac which contains our accounting records. Whenever a transaction is done, I file the doc in the respective subfolder.

I would like to have the same folders on DTPO with

  • the new files to be added to my iMac folder first and
  • the iMac folder to be synced whenever I need with DTPO in a separate database only used for this purpose.

I understand that I can save all the new files directly to DTPO instead of my iMac but would prefer to have them first on the iMac and then on DTPO.

Any help is very much appreciated.

Sounds like what you want is to index the folder from the iMac into your DEVONthink database. A search here or in the DEVONthink Pro Office manual for ‘indexing documents’ should get you started.

I am not so sure that indexing documents will transport all new files added to my folder on my iMac to DTPO. What do you think?

That’s exactly what indexing folders into DEVONthink does. I think you should try it and see for yourself.

How’d you get on? I’m trying to find a way to sync a folder and subfolders as well.
