When you want to get from the repository a resource which is part of a newly created
structure of folders, you need to also get its parent folders.
An incoming structure of folders from the repository
Syncro SVN Client allows you to choose how you want to deal with the entire structure from
that moment onwards:
- Update ancestor directories recursively - This option brings the
entire newly added folders structure into your working copy. In this case, the update time
depends on the total number of newly incoming resources, because of the full update
operation (not updating only selected resource).
- Update selected files only (leave ancestor directories empty) -
This option brings a skeleton structure composed of the resource's parent folders only, and
the selected resource at the end of the operation. All of the parent directories will have
depth set to empty in your working copy, thus subsequent
Synchronize operations will not report any remote modifications in
those folders. If you need to update the folders to full-depth, you can use
Update to revision/depth option from the working copy.
