WebDAV and file locks

Question asked by Joshua Fisher on Oct 24, 2012

Can I use a shared WebDAV folder to store Solidworks project and part files on, and can Solidworks utilize the file locking mechanisms of WebDAV to insure that edits aren’t overwritten?

 

I want to give multiple people, (who may be isolated geographically), access to a shared parts folder. I also need to prevent multiple users from overriding any current edits. A simple FTP or dropbox type folder won't accomplish this.

WebDAV supports file locks, but I was unsure if Solidworks was compatible. If WebDAV isn't what I'm looking for, is there a recomended solution?
