Re: What's the command to restore a deleted file

Thanks guys for all your help. That command restored the file o'right but
it also restored the entire subfolder and files from the previous revision
and marked it as an added new folder to the current directory structure
pending a commit?!

I hope, in the future versions svn, they will add an 'undelete' command to
simply restore the latest head revisions of a deleted file automatically
unless a revision is specified.

Make a copy first!!!!!

Ok, now that I got that out of my system. I assumed you removed the
file locally, but not in the repository. ie 'rm filename', not 'svn
rm filename; svn commit;'.

I'm probably not the best to ask about this, but I'll take a stab at
it. Someone else please correct me if there is a better/easier way.

You need to figure out what the last revision of this file that was checked
If you know the revision or a date, use them.
If you are on a project without a lot of commits, you might be able to
'svn info .', start with the revision given and work your way back
until one works.

svn cp -r <revision> <url> filename

then check it in.
