File Cache Conflict

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

Item Description
Load FS Changes Click this button to load the file version produced outside of WebStorm, and overwrite your local changes.
Keep Memory Changes Click this button to preserve the version produced in WebStorm and stored in cache.
Show Difference Click this button to invoke the differences viewer that shows the version in the file system to the left, and WebStorm version to the right. You can merge differences as required and load the desired version to WebStorm. By default, the cache version is saved.
