Wrong File Versions

Issue:

Two files with same file versions. The problem basically is that these files have the same version number under two different packages. This could have an impact on synchronization. 

Environment:
Harvest 12.5 client on Win 8.1
Cause:

There are two Version 0's. The two files look identical but they have completely different history diagram. 

 

File was part of the baseline of the project, then a branch version was checked out, checked in and merged to make version 1 

 

Then a brand new branch version of this file appears, and the new branch was merged to the trunk to make a new version 0 on the same day. 

 

Resolution:

Possible root cases could be that files came as a result of a cross project merge Or if there has been any refactoring for this file, or the folder.

 

 

The way to get past this problem is: 

1. Check out version 0 from the new package to a temporary folder (like C:\Temp1) 

2. Delete both version 0 and version x.1.1 from that package with the "Delete Version" process. 

3. Check out version 1 of this file from package ... for update to a second temporary folder (like C:\Temp2) 

4. Copy C:\Temp1\your_file to C:\Temp2\your_file, replacing the file that was there 

5. Check in the file from the C:\Temp2 folder.
