Tortoise SVN RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I want to move some files and folder from one svn location to another, the issue i am having is files will not retain history if i am doing copy svn paste at the root folder. Is there any way to keep svn history for the inside files even if we move root folder?

    my folder structure is like below,

    Folder1 (root folder)






    so i want to move all file along with root folder without loosing svn history of anything

    any help would be appreciated ,thanks in advance.

  • I suggest investigating the “Repo-browser” feature, which appears in context sub-menu of Windows Explorer for your folders. You can reorganize the folders and files keeping the history. Make a backup of repository before experimenting. After making changes, perform a "Checkout".

    Hi Kosh,

    Thank you for posting in the MSDN forum.

    Could you get useful information from Viorel’s suggestion?

    Actually this forum is to discuss:

    Visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor.

    So it seems that the real issue is not the VS General issue, am I right?

    If it is related to the “Tortoise SVN”, maybe you could select the support way from the Tortoise SVN site:

    If I misunderstood this issue, please make free feel to let me know.

    Best Regards,
