Not Providing Read Only Warning

Recommended Posts

We just upgraded everyone to 12.5 and run into an issue related to warning users if someone else is in a file. We have one computer that I work on with a external hard drive that stores all our VW files. Everyone else is networked to this machine/external hard drive to access files. When I try to open a file that is open elsewhere with my computer, I get a read only warning, do I want to open up another copy? This is great, normal, and expected. When someone else tries to open up a file from another computer that I already have open on my machine, no warning is issued, and they can open it right up. This is a big problem.

Is there a new setting in 12.5 that needs to be selected to stop this, or is this a new problem that needs to be fixed?
