I’ve moved my external drive from my MBP to Mac Mini-M1 both are running DT3. The DT3 database is on the external drive with other indexed files within it. I’ve network smb protocol connected the MBP to the M1 external volume so both have access to this external drive & files. After I enabled Bonjour on the M1 and synced the MBP database I was not asked where to save it on the MBP. In looking at the MBP database “Show in Finder” it shows the DT3 database to be the very same as the M1’s on its external drive. Both the MBP & M1 seem to be using/pointing to the same DT3 database on the external drive.
Is this correct? This seems save space on my MBP but not sure if it will cause problems? If not how do I get the MBP to ask where to save it’s own copy of the database?
(I really do not want all the files & indexed copied onto the MBP because of its limited space. It says it should do this if I am reading the very helpful Kissell’s TCoDT3 manual beginning at p209 correctly?)
