Re: Relocate, permissions problem

Found this on the dev list:

Note, on a switch --relocate, the client will try to discover the
repos root to ensure the UUIDs are the same as what it used to be.
Another option is to --force the relocate - that should disable the
UUID check - it's a bit unsafe, but it would circumvent them from
needing to do a PROPFIND on the root of the repository. -- justin

Cannot find any switch --relocate option in tortoise.
