What are the read only files generated in Dreamweaver that are named with arbitrary numbers and how can I keep them from being generated.
Posted on 2007-10-12
I use Dreamweaver CS2 on a Mac platform and work with other users who work on PCs. We have checkin/checkout activated for our web site. The problem is that my Mac is generating some annoying 'read only' duplicate files whenever I edit files in Dreamweaver. The problem is annoying enough that these files are created, but when I try to delete them I'm not allowed to unless I log in to a PC. I get a 'you do not have enough permission to delete this file' error when trying to delete these files from outside the dreamweaver application, and when inside the dreamweaver application the files disappear momentarily and then reappear even when I delete and use empty secure trash.
The local site files are on our Microsoft Exchange server. I don't have any trouble deleting any other files outside the Dreamweaver application or the Website folders OR any files other than these read-only duplicate files. AND I can delete these same files when I'm logged into a PC so I assume my permissions on the server/folder are set correctly. Also, these duplicate files are only created in the local site list, not the remote list.
My question is 3-fold.
Is there a setting I'm missing in Dreamweaver or on my MAC OS 10.4 that can prevent these read-only file duplicates from being created in the first place?
Is there a possible mac-user setting on the Microsoft Exchange server where the local web files reside that might not be properly set up?
Is there something about using checkin/checkout in dreamweaver and mixing mac and pc usage that is causing the problem? (I don't have this problem on sites I manage by myself)
