Syncing a mobile library with my desktop

Hello all,
I have a large amount of files in DTTG, I have just purchased DT3. Is there a way I can sync them.

It seems the sync only works from DT3>DTTG, and not the other way around.

I have tried to export my database from DTTG, but my ipad never accomplishes that.

Did you read the manual and/or use the search here? Sync is always both ways and has been discussed umpteen times here.

Welcome @Abraham_Clocks

Sync is covered in the Help for each application:

  • For DEVONthink, sync is covered in the Help > Documentation > In & Out > Sync, Preferences > Sync, and Troubleshooting > Sync Issues.
  • For DEVONthink To Go, sync is covered in the ? > Help > Sync your databases section.

There are manuals available here: Manuals

There is a forum post on syncing: Sync Types Explained
There is also one specifically about Bonjour: Bonjour Simplified

Thank you. I had read documentation on the website and searched the forums prior to asking the question. I had not read the manual. Somehow reading the manual lead me to understand my problem was that I simply put in the wrong password for my encryption. :saluting_face:

Thank you all for getting me there!


You’re welcome :slight_smile:
