delete all checked-in files from working directory

Post by erict » Fri May 26, 2006 9:10 am

Hallo ! Is there a way to delete all checked-in files from a working directory, or even better, from a project node (so that sub-projects are also done).

I would like to clean up my working area, and find out what jetsam and flotsam I have kicking around once the goodies are removed.

I once looked into this, and think I can't do it from the GUI, but is there a way with the console?

Thanks for all suggestions!

On Checkin, there is a checkbox labelled "Remove local copy". If you check that box, it will remove the file when it gets checked in.

Alternatively, you could do a diff of the working folder against the repository folder, which would identify files that exist in one place that don't exist in the other.
