About the Get Process
The process of copying projects from the server database to your local database is known as performing a get. The get process differs from checking out in the following ways:
- Getting projects does not lock them on the server database.
- Getting projects overrides all the projects on your local database, whether they are locked or not locked.
NOTE: The sample database, unlike a local database, cannot receive projects from the server database during a get. The sample database is intended for instructional use only.
Typically you perform a get to initially populate your local database. This process is known as a full get. You can also get projects to override objects stored on your local database.
