Files Being Overwritten

At my job we are using Dreamweaver CS3 to edit our html/coldfusion pages.  But we have been having problems with files being overwritten on our server.  Most of us when we make a change to one file grab and refresh that file prior to editing and reloading.  We are baffled as to how old files that we thought were deleted are reappearing....Not to mention our dept. is taking a lot of heat for it right now.

Any ideas?  Or ways to prevent this?

Hi Albee_J,

Do you control the production server or is your site hosted at an ISP?

The only things I can think of is that someone is putting files from their local site definition back on the production site for whatever reason or the ISP is having issues and reloading your site from its backups.

As far as prevention goes, it depends on the source of the problem.  Locally, you could enable Check-In and Check-Out and that should give you a clue as to who is misbehaving.  If the problem is with the ISP, good luck.

Our site is hosted with an ISP, but I will enable the check-in and check out .
