This warning is normal and usually issued in these circumstances, the first being the most common cause:
- After DEVONthink has terminated abnormally, e.g., by crash or force quit.
- When trying to access a database already opened by another person. This includes a database open in another logged in account on the Mac. DEVONthink is not made for multi-user simultaneous access.
- If you were trying to open multiple copies of the same database. This is usually caused by copying and renaming a
.dtBase2file in the Finder, and should not be done.
Press Continue . DEVONthink will do a checkup to ensure the database is healthy and report if there are problems.
