Give DEVONthink Full Disk Access

DEVONtechnologies' applications can interact with your system and other applications to create a interconnected computing experience. In Apple's parlance, "It just works". Or should I say, "It just worked"?

Travel With Your Data… Securely

When syncing DEVONthink on macOS, you have the option of using a local sync location, called a local sync store. Technically it’s a folder on a volume that keeps databases in syncable form.

Where Has My Disk Space Gone

This requires more judicious storage habits and paying closer attention to how much space is left. While you can find utilities that display this information in attractive types of charts, etc. you can get very good information directly from the operating system in macOS El Capitan and later.
