Assume that your original WC is in c:\projects\wc

First move your working copy to a temporary directory, say c:\temp\wc.

If your working copies has changes relative to r78 then make a second
copy of it exactly as it is, say c:\temp\wc-changed. If the WC is a
clean r78 then you can omit this step.

Now checkout a fresh WC from your r77 repository into the original
location, c:\projects\wc, giving you an r77 WC which is connected to a

If there were changes relative to r78 then you need to revert them in
c:\temp\wc to make it a clean r78 (be sure your backup copy is still
there with the changes in place).

Now right drag the clean r78 WC in \temp onto c:\projects and choose
Export versioned items here. You will get a message warning you that
the directory already exists. Choose the overwrite option. This will
copy the files which were changed by r78 over the top of your r77
working copy.

Now commit the changes, and your repository is at r78.

If you also have changes relative to r78 to incorporate you need to do
the same again. This time rename c:\temp\wc to c:\temp\wc-78 and
rename c:\temp\wc-changed to c:\temp\wc (the renaming bit is because
you want the folders to have the same name so that the new one
overwrites the old). Again right drag over c:\projects and export. You
now have an r78 WC with your latest changes, ready to commit.
