    When requesting a pull from Salesforce, unmanaged code retrieval will get only the files that have changed.  On managed packages TWS pulls everything, every time.  And on the screen that is shown at the end, TWS shows a a long list of the package name(s) repeated over and over, instead of a list of what files it pulls.  For unmanaged code, this screen shows the list of the files that were downloaded from the org.

      Hi George,

      Thank you for your post.

      A reason for the loading a whole managed package instead of changed files only is the mechanism how this is implemented. 

      The IDE detects a managed package as an entire element and this is why all the included files are dependent on operations which are applied to this package.

      We keep our eye on this case, and we will look for a way to change this approach.

      Also, thank you for bringing the issue when there are repeated package names instead of files' names in the result stage of the pulling process.

      We will investigate what is a reason for this behavior and if we would have any additional questions - we would greatly appreciate your help in our investigation.
