Updating Local Information
The Update command enables you to synchronize the contents of your local files with the repository. You can invoke this command on:
- Single or multiple files and directories.
- Entire project.
Depending on the updating options, the update procedure may take place silently. If all files are up-to-date, you are notified about that. Otherwise, the Update Info tab opens in the Version Control tool window where you can have the update information grouped as required.
