Hi Bill,

If I would be in your situation, I would thank god on my bare knees if I
had a recent backup of my repository.
I would restore it and start all over again.
There is a possibility to reduce the amount of work.
If you keep the individual files that you actually wanted to commit, you
might do the following:

After the restore of the backup, create a new sandpit by checking out
the correct branch.
Make the files you want to change editable (if necessary). Then, in the
sandpit, replace these files by the ones you originally wanted to
commit. Then commit these individual files. I would be happy with this.

Subject: [cvsnt] How do I uncommit?

Hi All,

I made a big mistake and am trying to fix things - I'm hoping cvsnt
makes it easy. 


I have TortoiseCVS on the client and CVSNT on the server  


C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC>cvs version

Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2260


I checked out my sandbox with cvs checkout -b latest_branch 

When what I should have done was cvs checkout -b older_branch


Then, I checked in a lot of files using the newer branch instead of the
older branch. 


Now I need to undo all the commits I did and re-do them into the older


How do I undo the commits I did when there are probably over a hundred
files or more? (I commited directories instead of individual files)


Thanks all for any help.

Best regards

Bill Walters
