OmniFocus Data Storage Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

I tried to backup the .ofocus files to a Thecus N4100 NAS server on my network but found it was not possible and kept getting an error message about file length.

""Can't copy the file package
"/Users/username/Library/Application Support/OmniFocus/OmniFocus.ofocus" to:
Error: (-37) Bad item name.
Would you skip and continue?""

I thought perhaps if I changed the file extention to .ofo I could back them up and then rename them on the server. Renaming surprised me by showing the .ofocus data file as a folder containing 336 .xml files.

I seem to remember another GTD app recently switched to SQL for storing data and the explanation for the change was potential corruption problems with .xml.

This creates several questions in my mind. Is OmniFocus data storage .xml AND do Omni Group feel it is a reliable way to store data AND is this only a temporary system in place for the BETA?


PS: I'm no expert just a user so please keep any replies simple.
