Good practices when associating work areas

If you use Microsoft Windows Explorer, you can associate a work area with a project or stream from Windows Explorer using the Dimensions | Associate with source control menu option. This creates the required metadata information in the folder to enable you to download to or update your work area from Windows Explorer.

If you use the desktop client, you need to associate your project or stream from the desktop client. You will need to update your work area using the desktop client.

If you are working on multiple projects and/or streams, the work areas that you associate with the projects and/or streams should be siblings. Avoid nesting them one under another. For example, work areas for the projects DEV and MAINT there respective work areas would be:

C:\projects\dev

and

C:\projects\maint.
