    What choice is likely to cause the most problems with a Revit Central File?  Select the best answer from the following: A - Copying a Central file to a new location. B - Moving a Central file to a new location on the file server.  C - Renaming a copy of a Central file. D - Opening the Central file.

    • A.

      A

    • B.

      B

    • C.

      C

    • D.

      D

    Correct Answer
    B. B
    Explanation
    Moving a Central file to a different location will cause the Central file to “break”. Critically, all local files associated with the Central file will not be able to Synchronize with the file. Moving the file “back” to its original location may not repair the damage done by moving it originally; requiring the Central file to be “Remade” meaning any work not synchronized with the Central file will be lost. Copying a Central file creates a local file of the Central file. Renaming a copy (a local file) will not affect the behavior of the Local File or the Central File. Last, whilst not recommended, opening a Central file has no direct impact on the Central file itself.
