|Video: Make Lost Files a Thing of the Past||
File management capabilities include:
Centralized storage with automated vault replication
With SolidWorks EPDM, you can create and maintain a single data location and vault that can be accessed by users worldwide to store and retrieve files. In addition to preserving a secure backup of product design data, secure file vaulting enables you to eliminate multiple “silos” of information, duplicate files, and unsynchronized revisions. Through vault replication, you can maintain the convenience of local file access directly from your workstation and only use the network to check-in or check-out files, as needed.
File Reference Management
Managing file references—the links between parts, assemblies, and drawings—is just as important as managing files for preserving the integrity of product development data. The SolidWorks EPDM system manages all file references and automatically updates them whenever you move a file to a different folder or rename it, eliminating broken references or the time required to locate and fix lost references manually.
