The ability to have the exact same file exist in more than one location within your SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM vault can be a huge time saver. The difficulty sometimes is that once a file has been shared, it can be difficult to tell where the file has been shared.
If the file has not been deleted, you can search for the file –a separate listing of the file should appear for each share.
I think it is easier to RMB click on the file and choose “Properties” from Windows Explorer.
A file that is shared will have a “Links” tab. This tab shows all the locations where this file exists.
