View Full Version : MobileMe Sync Failed - any advice?

I am not quite sure how to give more info on why its failing but
my location is:
Reason for failing:
I have a hunch that I have the same case of the "growing data-base" as I read in previous posts but I am still not clear as to check on that issue.
Also, I "backuped up database" and then tried to "revert to backup database" but that also failed and it was unable to identify the reasoning.

I had the same issue yesterday and posted my experience in a new thread a few hours ago -- http://forums.omnigroup.com/showthread.php?t=9141

I was mistaken when I recommended backup and restore to shrink your database. (Or maybe the behavior changed when I wasn't looking.) You need to export as an OmniFocus document (not a backup or archive document) and then use "Revert to Backup" and choose that export.
(Yes, this should be easier. There's just a bug with that right now too.)

Here's a script to shortcut the process: (Thanks Ken!)

I also have a MacBook Pro. I'm not sure if that's the issue but I've been trying to fix this for the past 4days and I've read a million posts and still can't figure it out.. ugh! lol

What exactly do I do with this script?

Download it. Unzip it. Double-click the script. It should open in Script Editor. Click Run in the toolbar of that window.

ok. i ran it and this is what I got:
document id "aUgqdfNU2xM" of application "OmniFocus"
Is there anything else that I should do?

I tried this script and my .ofocus database is still 27.8MB. Still having the same issue although I can sync from my old G5 but not the new MBP. I assume it has a problem syncing for the first time to such a large file.
Any other suggestions or is this a bug?
