This option enables you to determine whether a file that is copied to a user's desktop will override a duplicate copy of the same file. For example, a user can be modifying an object called oil232.drw. The user can then copy an Assembly to the desktop that contains the same object as one of its sub-Assemblies.
This option determines if the second copy of this object will overwrite the existing copy of the object. Click on the dropdown arrow to select one of the following
SmarTeam - Editor will overwrite a read-only file. If the file on the user's desktop is a read-only file, then the new copy of the file will overwrite the existing copy. For example, a user could have copied an Assembly to the desktop that contains the object oil.drw as a sub-Assembly. This sub-Assembly file is a read-only file, as it was copied to the desktop as part of an Assembly only. If the user then decides to check out and modify this specific object (oil.drw), the new file will overwrite the existing one.
