synchronize, ignoring existing folders


Is it possible to script synchronize operation on folder, containing subfolders, as so to index content of just newly added folders, ignoring synching existing ones?

It’s possible but a lot of work as DEVONthink Pro’s AppleScript suite doesn’t support this. Basically you’d have to…

  • get the path of each indexed group in the selected hierarchy
  • get the contents inside the referenced folder in the Finder
  • check whether the contents are already in the database
  • if not, index them

Alternatively there could be a checkbox in the Info Panel -> “Exclude from…” -> Synchronization

I second this request :smiley:
