Thanks Bob and Phil for the quick responses! I thought about doing it
this way (copying the next version onto the older version and
recommitting), but the problem is that some files have been deleted as
we go from Folder_2000 to Folder_2001. If I just copy Folder_2001 onto
Folder_2000, those old files will remain and as I do all these
versions, I would be left with a lot of dead code. Unfortunately,
there are two many files for me to easily go in by hand and delete the
ones that have been deleted. Any ideas?
