    I recently got it in a bundle and I was wondering..

    since DT "copies" the original PDF into it's own database, do you delete your original file afterwards?

    For example, if I have my tax documents in my dropbox/tax/tax2012. Do I drag it into DT and then delete the original since it's going to be "organized" in DEVONthink? Because otherwise, wouldn't we technically have two copies of the same file?

    Im trying to find a good workflow to go paperless.

    With DT, you have a choice. You can do as you describe and toss everything in to the database, delete the originals or keep two copies OR you can leave your documents where they are and index them in DT which is what I do.
