Syncing indexed databases

I created a new database today for a case with multiple gigabytes of data. The database is under 200MB on my local disc. The indexed directory is kept in sync with my MacBookAir at home.

I use a local sync store and a File Transporter to keep my DevonThink in sync.

When I looked at the local sync store today, it swelled from 1GB to over 6GB, I assume because of the indexed directory.

Will the sync store get smaller once I import the new database and DevonThink sees that all the indexed files are stored on the other computer as well?


No. Your local database is not going to point to a remote machine (and logically it shouldn’t. What if that machine exploded or was out for repair? What would your local database be pointing to?)
