I searched the forums, but could not find the answer. I may be missing it. Either way, this may be a simple question (if a bit newbie-ish. )
Q: Can I use two different sync methods to sync a database between newer and older versions of DTTG? Are there any conflicts, issues, risks, missing features, etc?
My current setup is:
- 2018 MacBook Pro running DEVONthink 3.7.2
- iPhone 11 Pro running DTTG 3.1.3
- Sync via CloudKit
I have an old iPad Air on which I would like to install DTTG. Unfortunately, the newest iOS it runs is 12.5.4. This means the newest version of DTTG I can run is 2.7.9, which of course cannot use CloudKit.
Can I sync my DT3 database to iCloud (Legacy) - or Dropbox - to sync with DTTG2 on the iPad Air?
I believe the sync databases are separate, so multiple sync methods should not be a problem by itself, but I don’t know about mixing versions of DT. (Is there any risk? Is there any information that doesn’t sync?)
Prior to DTTG3 + CloudKit, I used iCloud to sync, though am open to Dropbox if necessary (eg, if the two iCloud syncs cannot be used simultaneously).
Thanks for any guidance!
