In the folder you can delete the duplicate files that won't check-in. Then use the Update References tool using the "Find Files" option.
Hi Michael, Thanks a lot for your answer. But I need some more details.
I created an assembly with 6 parts and checked into the vault.
Then I checkout the assembly, copied the 7 files to new folder, then in the copied folder, modified two part names, modified assly name, modified assly references to two modofied parts.
Then I pasted the folder in vault. Then checked in the folder. Only the assly and two parts got checked in. Then I deleted the other 4 parts which could not be checked-in.
Then I selected the assembly in vault. clicked Tools --> Update references.
But it showed only two references. SO THE REFERENCES OF THE FOUR DELETED FILES WERE ALSO DELETED.
Pl. suggest how to update references.
Add the assembly file to the vault but do not check it in until you run the Update References tool. If you check it in the parts are suppressed and therefore won't be in the list. I'm told you can also check out the assembly file and make a change in the file data card to make the Update References tool once again try to find the files.
