        Subject: Update deleted local changes after rollback

        Hi all, me and my colleague have lost big changes in our code...

        here's a quick summary:

        repository has these files:


        A: commits changes to all the files and adds 2 new files

        repository now has these files:


        B: Sees that these changes f**ks up the whole program and he rollbacks to only x,y,z

        A: keeps his changes locally and keeps changing them until they work...

        B: commits new code.

        A: is happy because now everything works on his local copy. Then he pushes 'update' in netbeans before he commits.....

        SVN: now deletes all of A's changes and new files..

        A: screams in terror and tries to get back his files... but not a chance... He can get the changes he committed before the rollback, but the real big changes are now deleted....

        Is there a way to undo this update? Or to save us the next time, is there a way to take a local backup before updating???
        Please help we're desperate here... Its about 1 week of programming down the toilet...

        Erlend Olsen

How exactly did he "rollback to only x,y,z"?

Please, do not post in HTML.
