    Two dreamweavers accessing the same files

    Gadget1969
      I have two desktops, one with client files on its hard drive and shared. The other is mapped to that hard drive and uses the same drive letter. Both machines have Dreamweaver on them. When one desktop opens a job and builds pages, the other can also (at a different time of course) open the same file and make edits. At times, one of these machines will come back to a file, and its all screwed up. I thought it might have something to do with the latest version of Plugin Labs menu extension, but now I'm thinking it has something to do with Dreamweaver's handling of the files. Has anybody else experienced problems in a similar situation. I find myself constantly backing up entire site files to a zip folder just in case everything blows up when I open it. Problem is, sometimes one files is screwed up, and it overwrites the backed up one....can't win for trying sometimes.

          I do this ALL the time, and have never experienced your issue (Vista and
          XPPro - files on XPPro).

          I would also not touch anything from Plugin Labs.
