    As you know NWDI is used for multiple user development scenario.

    so this means that at the same time no of users can do changes in no of DCs.

    but when you check out any DC to edit, at that time NWDS fetches necessury dependencies from NWDI. and keep it as local. when you make changes it uses that local dependecies fro reference.

    If you keep those local dependecies for a longer period of time. those become outdated. as may be somebody had made some changes in it.

    so it asks for sync archive means fetching the updated information from NWDI.

    Its always a better practice to sync sources befor making any change in DC.

      remove from client means a local copy of project is removed from the .dtr folder(from your local machine).

      If any activity of of DC is checked in, that means DC is created in DTR.

      if you reverted the very first activity of DC which creates it. then DC is not going to be created in DTR.

      if this is the case, and still you can see the DC in your inactive space then just reimport configuration
