Sync Technology

DEVONthink and DEVONthink To Go allow you to work with your databases on all your devices and keep them synchronized.


Gives You the Choice

We don’t force you to store your data on our servers. Instead, we support a range of transport options for you to choose from:

  • Directly over the local network
  • Local file servers
  • Hard drives, USB sticks, SD cards
  • iCloud
  • Dropbox
  • WebDAV

By synchronizing indexed files and folders DEVONthink can be used to synchronize any number of folders in the file system with another Mac. Its highly efficient sync mechanism with built-in compression is is usually faster than using the cloud services’ clients and not limited to just one folder.


Transfers Data Fast

The next-gen sync released with DEVONthink 2.9 is up to 688 times faster than our first-generation sync and up to 70 times faster than competing services. It uses less disk or cloud space and requires much fewer files and folders. Also, it consumes up to 80 percent less bandwidth, less RAM, and less computing power.


Let's You Sleep in Peace

Strong AES 256 bit encryption ensures that your private data stays private. Our sync encrypts all data sent over the local network or saved to iCloud, Dropbox, or WebDAV. Neither the service providers nor we can read the data without your consent.


Doesn't Break Down Easily

Multiple clients can upload and download data to and from sync stores simultaneously without waiting for each other. To ensure maximum compatibility between the Mac and iOS platforms we use the exact same code on both.
