Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

I work for a small company, and set up a CVSNT server.  It was 
primarilly set up for our programming staff, but the artists use it too.  I 
told them to simply flag all their files as binary in tortoise (they never 
use ASCII files), but then they got huge.

So I finished RTFMing, and I noticed that it's not using binary diffs 
between photoshop, etc. files.
So I went in, and tried admin -kB filename, but that didn't work.  I assume 
it's because there are already several revisions with the ascii type of 
diffs.  Is there a way to (hopefully batch) convert the months of files and 
revisions to use binary deltas instead?

Or does this not make the huge difference I think it will?

Also, is there a way to have tortoise ( default to using -kB for 
binary files instead?

The only other solution is going to be me spending three days rebuilding 
each file by hand.  And there getting the old versions of some of these 
files will be a long process.

Thanks in advance!
