IDEA & SourceSafe

Why my IDEA allows to check out a file that *has already been checked out by another user *in SourceSafe? What is the sence of SourceSafe if IDEA treats files like this?

Anton,

With VSS as far as I remember you have to explicitly disable multiple
checkouts. Otherwise VSS allows you to do that. On the other hand, if
you work with other source control systems like CVS, it is the only
natural way when every file potentially can be edited by many people.

Idea is currently dumb about VSS statuses. VSS is bz default set to
exclusive checkout.
