Database lost with version upgrade

Just upgraded to the most recent version of Omnifocus for the iMac. This version cannot find the Omnifocus database for my previous version. So I need a bit of help.

Where is the Omnifocus database located? And would I face any issues if I booted from that database to bring up the new version?

Thanks. Hopefully any reply will come to my emails address as well as appear on this forum.

I believe it’s in ~/Library/Containers/com.omnigroup.OmniFocus2/Data/Library/Application Support/OmniFocus

But I’d be very careful trying to ‘restore’ it from there.

Strongly suggest asking Omni for support. Good luck!

Thanks for the reply. I found a copy of the manual which suggested I resync since I run Omnifocus on my ipad and iphone as well. Did so and it works just fine now.
