First of all, let me point out that I have been using the program (DTPO) for only about three days or so. It seems to be a wonderful piece of software and I am really enjoying exploring its potential. This is to say that I am a very new user and I am sure that I have a lot to learn about it.
Now on to the problem that I am having. Yesterday I imported a number of Emails from Mail and my addresses from the Mac Address book. This created a folder entitled “Email and Addresses” in my database. So far so good. I then went on to index some of my folders and files. When I was satisfied that everything was set up the way I wanted it I looked over the list of folders that I created in the database - and noticed that the Email and Addresses folder no longer existed. After a long search I found that it had been moved to the trash. I am sure that I did not delete the folder and I am at a loss as to how it ended up in the trash. I just chalked it up to a newbee error and moved on.
This morning a similar thing happened. I opened a Word (.doc) file from the DTPO database, edited some of the text, saved it and exited from Word. I then noticed that the edited file had been moved to the trash. Again, I know that I did not delete the file.
Any suggestions about what I am doing to cause this? I am being to be concerned that I am going to inadvertently lose some import files by using the program.
Is there anyway to set DTPO to prompt me to be sure that a file should be deleted - something like “Are you sure you want to delete this file or folder”??
Any assistance would be most welcome.
