When I go to checkout out a file, sometimes a previous user has forgotten to check the file back in and I have the option to override their checkout. When doing that, are the changes the previous user made saved or discarded?

  • The changes do get saved if you have permission to override. Just tried in 2013 – user53017 Aug 25 '16 at 19:17

Overriding checkout will remove the lock and assign the checkout user data to your name.

Nothing will get Saved/Discarded (These changes are available in the previously checked out user's computer).

You risk losing any changes made by previous user that were not saved.
