Hello

 

Is it possible to set the system to always overwrite older version to new version

 

Its very annoying to always get the warning about this

Yes, you can migrate them all at once using the Task Scheduler.  You can run the task to do all files in a specified folder, or you can do it for all files in a specified project.

 

Using the Task Scheduler is the recommended method for migrating large quantities of data.

From the WikiHelp:

 

Prompt to save for migration.PNG

 

You can find this check box in Tools > Application Options > Save tab.

 

I haven't tried this out to see if it does exactly what you want, but as far as I can tell, it is the closest you can get.

I have Inventor 2013 but most files is made in 2012.

So everytime I edit, placing an older file I always get this question about Data Format

I have about 9000 files and its annoying to klick OK on every old file

Cant I migrate all of them to 2013

This must be done over night.

 

The procedure seams to use alot of time
