Re: How to remove local files without affecting repository

From: Ronni Rosenberg <ronnir_at_alum.mit.edu>

Let me be more specific. I have the following structure:


(The subdirectories have their own subdirectories in turn.)

I want to delete my working copy of Subdirectory2. Then, when I do
future updates at the level of MyHeadDirectory, I want to get only
Subdirectory1 and Subdirectory3. Is this doable?

I tried what you suggested -- doing an Update To Revision on
Subdirectory2, but Exclude isn't one of the options under Revision
