Is there a way to stop Solidworks from saving read-only files?

I want to check out top level assemblies from the vault to change them only.  I take ownership of only the assemblies I want to change and leave all the parts read-only.

When I save the assembly, Solidworks wants to save all of the files, (part and sub-assemblies).  In the file explorer all the read-only files now have green triangles showing they are newer than the vault.  I need some suggestions on how to quit doing this.
