I have a group with the indexed “replicates” of around nnn files in a folder outside of DT. When I “update indexed items”, instead of updating the contents of the group DT adds duplicates of the pre-existing items. Now I have 2 x nnn “replicates” in the group.
Is it something I am doing, or is it DT? Solution?
Same problem as with an older one: https://discourse.devontechnologies.com/t/update-indexed-items-yields-duplicates-of-items-already-in-g/12978
Where are the indexed items located, is the path of the duplicates identical?
Indexed items are located on the internal disk on a OneDrive location.
Yes, the path of the duplicates is the same.
One more note: I get this problem after migrating to a new Mac . I followed the instructions from: DEVONtechnologies | How to Migrate to a New Mac
Screenshots showing the Info inspector of two duplicates would be useful, thanks.
I think I managed to find out the root cause of the problem.
The file in the existing database (before update index) has the path:
~/OneDrive - Xxx/Bases de données/xxx/Database Platforms/assets/RE- End of Week note.eml
And the ‘new’ file after index update looks like:
~/Library/CloudStorage/OneDrive-Xxx/Bases de données/xxx/Database Platforms/assets/RE- End of Week note.eml
With the new Mac I got automatically the upgrade to the new OS Monterey where the OneDrive location goes under ‘CloudStorage’.
The question is: how can I fix this problem as I have tens of databases based on OneDrive.
Ugh! That’s what I suspected.
- Go into a problematic database.
- Select an indexed parent group.
- Open the Tools > Inspectors > Generic Info inspector.
- Click the flyout arrow next to the Path field and choose Select.
- Select the parent folder in its new location in the Finder. This should resolve the paths in the database.
- Repeat as needed.
