About the .MySCMServerInfo File
When you get or check out a file from Surround SCM, a .MySCMServerInfo file is generated and placed in your working directory. The .MySCMServerInfo file stores information about the local files in your working directory such as the name of the file, location on the server, timestamp, and latest merge performed. When you log in, Surround SCM uses the .MySCMServerInfo file to determine if your local files are up to date or out of sync with the Surround SCM Server. This information is used to generate values shown in the Status column in the Source Tree view.
The Status column in the Source Tree view displays the status of local files in your working directory. Surround files can have the following status:
Deleting the .MySCMServerInfo file
You should never remove or modify the .MySCMServerInfo file stored in your working directory. If the information stored in the file is changed, the Status column in the Source Tree view will display an unknown value for all files because Surround will not be able to determine file status. This could cause problems if you are updating files from the Surround SCM Server in your working directory. For example, if you check out or get a file that is more current in your working directory than on the server, your changes will be lost.
