Sometimes a central file needs to move. The process to do so is very easy, simply copy to the new location and re-save the file. But it is also important to understand how important it is for all users to access the model from the same drive mapping. This helps avoid "false positives."
- [Narrator] In this video,…I want to discuss moving central files.…Now there could be a variety of reasons…why you might need to move a central file,…and I wanna talk about what some of those issues might be…and then of course make sure that you understand…what steps are involved to move a central file.…Bottom line is is moving a central file…is fairly easy to do,…but just the same, we want to try and avoid doing it…on a regular basis, because it can be disruptive…to the entire project team.…Firstly, I wanna kind of back up for a minute…and reiterate a point that I've made…in a few of the other videos,…but I wanna make sure it's really clear…that in order for a central file to function properly,…you always have to access it in the same way.…
Revit will record the location…of the central file internally…and if you try and access that file from a different path,…it simply will not work.…The first part that I wanna show you,…I'm gonna just demonstrate on my system,…there's nothing for you to follow along with here,…
Paul F. Aubin teaches you the skills you need to create your central model, configure worksharing settings, and perform ongoing maintenance as the project progresses. Learn how to move a central file, update links, upgrade projects, open local copies in detached mode, and archive the project when it's done. Plus, find out how to monitor sharing and user activity. This course covers all the skills you need to manage worksharing projects from start to finish.
