I have 21k of files...and I have to find duplicates and eliminate them...
Data prep utility is a great tool:
I have part 2x 23146_01.par and only difference is in path.
Is there a way to find this assembly/part where this part is used?
Where used in Project manager is not working...
By "project manager" did you mean "design manager"?
And what do you mean by "not working".
From the image I highly doubt you have multiple files, it looks like you have multiple paths to the same file. I'm assuming the IP of your UNI-S1 server is 192.168.0.8, the rest of the path is the same in a Windows world (not case sensitive).
We just ran into a similar issue where we have assemblies using different paths to the same file. For example, four nuts in an assembly and two have one path and the other two have a different path to the same file. We are still trying to find out why/how that happened, seems to have just started int the past couple weeks.
Can you elaborate what you mean Where Used is not working? You can run it from Solid Edge or from Design Manager. Where Used command is what you need to find the assemblies/parts/drafts that use a specific file.
This is a sample only I am aware about this file paths.
I have 824 occurences of duplicates and portion of them are just path resolwing issues.
I have done simple test:
1. SE ST9 MP8
2. I maked 2 ASMs in different directories.
2. I maked 1.par file witch is used in both assemblies(1 copy per 1 asm files ) to create a duplicate situation.
Then I want to find all assemblies where 1.prt is used.
After scan including all files and subfolders:
What is wrong??
1. Windows finished indexing. I moved files on disk D:\ where no indexing services is working. And I can find assembly where 1.part is used.
2. I moved to SE9 MP7 - still the same issue with indexed localizations.
Windows 10 1703.
When I pick 1.prt from my desktop(indexed localization) and during "Where used" I select non indexed localization to search in, I still get no results.
We found a bug I geuss...
After while we decided to move all docs from server to local HDD partition D:\
Then replace all occurrences of 192… and Uni-s1 to D:\Share
Design manager was unable to work on old server localizations. Unpredictable results occurs. Terrible situation.
Now we have stable copy of production documentation.
