Monitor the workspace for file changes

When this is set a background process will monitor the files in the workspace and automatically check them out when they are edited. This is useful if you do not use Visual Studio or Eclipse and you do not want to check the files out in the Explorer client.

You can manually see what files have changed by running the Check Consistency Wizard, but this option allows you to keep track of what files are being changed real-time.

Note

If this option is enabled then you will typically disable the 'Checked in files are read-only' option. Otherwise you will need to make each file writable before editing it.
