Best practice for checking out a file

Hello,

What is the SAP best practice to check out a file? (DTR -> EDit or DTR -> Edit Exclusive?)

What are pros and cons of checking out a file exclusively?

Thanks

MLS

    Exclusive is "not done" if you have co-developers... since it prevents them from working on the same file.

    Thanks Pascal.

    Also, I think if a developer checks out exclusively, makes changes and leaves the company without checking in, the only way is to revert those files in which case all his changes will be gone.
