Fortress Cache Corrupt When Move Fails

Post by staggart » Fri Aug 14, 2009 4:56 pm

When I move a folder in fortress 1.x and it fails (because there are files checked out in folder), I get a message saying the move failed (fine) but in tree view, it shows the folder as moved (bad) even though it has not in fact moved (i.e., when another user looks at the tree they see the unmoved folder). Is there any way besides wiping the cache to fix this? When I use the F5 key it does not update the view to be correct.

The failed folder move could be sitting in your Pending Changes tab. Take a look there, select the item showing the folder move action, and hit your delete key. That will remove the pending action with no other changes than placing your tree back to it's original view. Things that are sitting in pending area have been applied to the cache but not checked into the Fortress server, so others won't see it.
