Solution:

When we sync the Head Revision We very often get one Info warning that “Can’t clobber writable file”. it’s very easy to force sync in case of less number of files. But when you have list of files this become tedious and time taking to do force sync.

The main reason for this issues is files under source control were marked as read-only and when a file is checked out or while editing in Editor(Eclipse, VS Studio), then it removes the read-only attribute.

To solve the issues, marked every file as read-only and get the latest revision without any errors.
