SOT: Dreamweaver check in/check out issues, "File activity incomplete".

I have run into a very perplexing problem today with Dreamweaver 8.0.1, Rachel Maxim 04/06/2006 03:58 PM

Author: Rachel Maxim Short Link: I have run into a very perplexing problem today with Dreamweaver 8.0.1, I can't find a thing about it on MM's site, and I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this and might know what causes it. This has to do with Dreamweaver "losing" the latest version of my files or reverting them back to an old version after an error. I am using Dreamweaver check in/check out, there is 1 other developer working on the same project. We are developing on a separate Win2K3 dev server and keeping local copies. We are connecting to the server via local file system. A couple hours ago I checked out a file, made some changes, and when I attempted to upload it, I received a Dreamweaver error in the "Background file activity" window that said "File activity incomplete. 1 file(s) or folder(s) were not completed." There were no additional details shown. I could not check in the file. I restarted Dreamweaver which did not fix the problem. I rebooted which did not fix the problem. I went into the server and manually deleted the file on the server, and was then able to upload the file. However when I went back to work on other files I had been working on all morning, I discovered that all my local files and all the files on the server had reverted back to what I started with first thing this morning.  For what it's worth, I hadn't been running much of the code on the server, I was writing a bunch of interdependent cfc's that needed to be complete before they could run, so I was doing a lot of local writing and not a lot of server testing, meaning I can't remember what the latest version on the server actually was. I did receive this DW error when I opened the files after restarting: "The document (my doc) has changed since the last time you opened it in Dreamweaver. The starting and ending points of collapsed code may have shifted, and you may not be able to see the changes. Do you want to expand all collapsed code so that you can reset collapsible fragments?" (I did have chunks of collapsed code). Then when I opened the file it was old. There were still check-in "lock/lck" files on the server showing the timestamp from the latest version, but the files themselves were old and timestamped from yesterday. Both the other developer and I had edited the troublesome file (happened to be Application.cfm) during the time this occurred, but files that I lost had not been touched by the other developer. Luckily my system admin was able to recover my work from a backup about a half hour before the data loss occured. I started working again and am now again encountering the same problem, once again I cannot upload this file. I just tried opening one of my other files and I'm getting the same "the document has changed" error. Has anyone ever seen anything like this? I've had issues in the past with Dreamweaver not putting the latest version of my files due to incorrect timestamps, but I applied the 8.0.1 updater and haven't had the issue since. Not sure if this is related or not. Anyone who can shed some light on this will be my hero :) Thanks!
