Avoid losing data when running and creating tests at the same time
I am using a shared source for storing my tests. This is so I can run the tests on a VM while accessing the same Project Suite to create other tests. When doing this I get a message that the test was modified elsewhere and an opportunity to reload it.
The problem I am having is if I reload it one of 2 things happens. If I get the prompt on the machine I am creating tests on, I lose tests that were created, I can manually add them in as existing items, this is a bit tedious. On the other hand, if I get the prompt on the machine I am running the tests on and I reload it the logs for the running tests disappear. I'm sure they are still there in the files but no longer show in the tests.
Is there a way to prevent this from happening?
I would recommend using source control for sharing your test assets as opposed to a shared director. There many man benefits to doing this.
