Prevent replace from deleting a file [message #38810] Fri, 05 December 2008 10:26 Go to next message

Hi,

When I have a project checked out via SVN and copy a file into it which
already exists and choose to replace it, the file is marked for
deletion. Perhaps Eclipse, when replacing, first deletes the file
trigging an svn delete command and then copies it?
Anyway I'd like to be able to prevent the deletion command from being
triggered. It should treat the "new" file as if it were the old one but
with some changes. Is this possible?

Regards,

Marijn.

Hello Marijn,

If you perform a replace action, it's normal that source file is marked for
deletion, what's wrong here? Target file could be marked as Replaced
(Added).
Or do you have that target file is marked for deletion, then what exact
status do you have for it (you can see it in Commit dialog in Content
column)?
Also as a workaround you can just copy content from the source file and
paste it to target file.
