File Cache Conflict

If an external process changes a file that was opened and unsaved in CLion, it results in two conflicting versions of the file. Use the following options to resolve conflicts.

Keep Memory ChangesClick this button to preserve the version produced in CLion and stored in cache.
Show DifferenceClick this button to invoke the differences viewer that shows the version in the file system to the left, and CLion version to the right. You can merge differences as required and load the desired version to CLion. By default, the cache version is saved.
