Hi Guys,



We are about to try and start using vault but have already built up a large number of solidworks assemblies and we are trying to work out the best way to manage the transfer process to vault



By rights we should have started using vault at the same time we started using solidworks but that didnt happen.



The way i see it the best thing to do would be to methodically pack and go each existing assembly to the local working folder before tansfering it into vault, we would leave all the existing stuff in pre-vault folder structure on the network and mark up the files with superceeded or something.


Because its going to take a fair bit of time to get everything transferred into vault we are going to find ourselves insituations where common parts that are already checked into vault may also need to be referenced to by non vault assemblies.


Is there any way to do this
