Sorry if I missed the answer to my question in other posts, but I spend 1 day trying to figure this out and I still can't find a solution.

I have my parent stream, stream A.
I want to have a child stream B, that will use the same workspace (so same files on disk, no duplicates) of stream A, with this behavior:
  • it shares everything with A but 1 folder. So I don't want to have to merge down, I want the common folders to be always in sync;
  • for that specific folder, I want stream B to have it's own version of it, as in check-ins in this folder will only go in stream B.
1) If I make B a normal stream, I would achieve what I want, but I would need to merge regularly to keep she common files in sync.
I can still do that and have an automated process to merge.

2) I thought about making B virtual, exclude everything and share that one folder, but check-ins in this folder would go in the parent stream as well.

I'm am a very basic user of P4, so I might be missing some obvious solution here, hence this post.

Sorry again if this ends up being a duplicate.
