About accessing elements not loaded into a snapshot view

While working with source files in a snapshot view, you might need to see the contents of elements that are not loaded into the view or see HCL VersionVault information about these nonloaded elements. For example, you may have chosen not to load a VOB that contains functional specification documents. However, you may want to periodically check to see whether the functional specifications have been modified by reviewing the history of the elements.

You can view nonloaded files or copy them into your view for build purposes, but you cannot check them out. Only file elements that are loaded into your view can be checked out.
