SVN Client: Relocate working copy

Tue Jan 19, 2016 6:40 pm

Hi,

I almost totally switched from Eclipse built-in SVN client to Syncro SVN Client. We are changing our IT infrastructure so I am wondering if there is a feature to relocate a checked out working copy to another location, thus avoiding to repeat the checkout.

I have seen that I can simply edit the repositories to look at the new sever, but how would I do his for existing checkouts? The feature might be named "Relocate working copy"…

Thanks,

- Michael

Hi,

If you moved the repository and want to update it in the working copy, open Syncro SVN Client, switch to the Working Copy view, select the root folder and use menu > Tools > Relocate. You can find more details about this in the manual: SVN Client / Relocate a Working Copy

If you want to move the actual working copy folder in the file system, there is no specialized action for relocating it, but there is no need for one. All you have to do is move the base folder of the working copy to the new location (via Windows Explorer or Finder depending on your OS) and re-add it to the list of working copies from Syncro SVN Client, menu > Working copy > Working Copies Manager, Add.

Regards,
Adrian

Thanks a lot. I understand the tip to search for a keyword I have in mind (and not just look at context menus). Point taken :-)
