I am very new to source tree - i have already installed sourcestree and cloned the repository. Can anyone help me if source tree has an option to Check-out file by leaving it locked as it is in MS TFS?
Community moderators have prevented the ability to post new answers.
SourceTree, as a graphical front-end for git, is a distributed version control system, so the files that you are editing are local files stored only on your own workstation. There is no need or capability to lock them. If another developer is making changes to the same file, they will need to be merged, either (ideally) through a merge operation if you are working on distinct branches or when one of you does a pull to update your local repo.
"Checkout" in git has a very different meaning than it does in centralized version control systems. In git, "checkout" means to select a commit or branch and set your working directory to that version.
