I am getting frequent errors that are now affecting the data I am working so hard to curate.
As I move and reorganize my mostly PDF library, it takes but a few minutes to get the following message:
EagleFiler could not save the library
Could not merge changes.
So I quit or close the library and I get this on re-open:
The trash for “Documentation and Reference” contains one or more records whose files are missing.
I click Forget and while the PDFs are there and moved to the folder they should be in, important metadata, like the source URL are gone, PLUS the old reference to the PDF is there with all the metadata EXCEPT the PDF itself.
I have this in my local Documents folder and iCloud sync is turned off, so there are no other Macs accessing this db, like some of the other issues raised in the forum.
I started this process because I thought the number of objects was too much, but looking at other articles here, it shouldn’t be too much. Just to be sure, this is everything in my main library:
2 HTML Files
7 Microsoft Word (2007) Documents
1 RTF Document
5 Text Files
251 Web Archives
Please help. I don’t know what else to do.
