[Solved] Collab won't get teammate's latest commit? (Workspace has changed since update)

    Hello,

    After one of my team mates has pushed some changed (added new 3d assets) to our project, unity collab doesn't seem to want to get the updates anymore on my side, as I am greeted with an error:

    upload_2019-3-2_22-31-50.png

    Is there any way to fix this, other than redownloading the project from the cloud? (I'm really trying to avoid that as its a ~30gb project with tons of files, shaders and code that could take hours to reimport and recompile)

    All of us are using unity 2018.3.6f and there is no actual error in the editor log. Any solution or idea would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I still don't know what caused it, but in case anyone is facing a similar issue, I've managed to solve it by doing the following:

    -Closed Unity.
    -In the project folder there is a folder Library/Collab. Deleted the CollabSnapshot files inside (they are .txt or something)
    -Reopened Unity.
    -Synced again.

    One issue with this workaround is that after syncing everything on my side, collab discarded all the changes my mate did in cloud (deleted his new files, reverted modified files to my copies etc.) so if anyone is having this issue and is behind with the commits, I suggest just to redownload the project again and import the changed files from the old one.

    Anyway hope this helps :)

    Just had this issue today. Was able to guess what file it was confused about and delete it. Collab let me update, and then I was able to revert the deleted file to be undeleted afterwards. Unfortunately it means changes to the file in the latest commit were lost and it was effectively reverted to the old revision, but it did let me get around the issue.

    Thanks, saved us from copying the entire project over via a giant zip! :)

    If only the error actually had anything to do with solving it so I didn't need to google.

    Still happening, guess they've abandoned Collaborate since most people use Github or something
