Watch folder

Post by drsoram »

Hi John

Questions re watch folder:
1. Is is a good or bad idea to make my default attachments folder the same as my watch folder? Pros and Cons?
2. Is it ok now with the latest update to Bookends to keep my default attachments folder on an external hard drive NOT the main Mac drive?

Thank you
Soram

1. That is a terrible, terrible idea. Since Bookends moves attachments from the watch folder *into* the default attachment folder, this will force Bookends to turn off watching (because otherwise it goes into an infinite loop). Please read the user guide section on watch folders very carefully so you understand their purpose.

2. Yes, you should be able to keep it on an external HD.
