Hi folks, I saw the recent post asking about resurrection from "state dead". I use this approach for single files: cvs -log -N filename [find the last non-dead revision] cvs up -r revisionNumber -p filename > filename cvs add filename cvs commit filename "back from the dead..." But what if a person accidentally CVS Removes most of a project? Don't laugh - it has happened due to lack of training and failure to understand the Remove command. What is the best method to get the files back and retain their revision history? We may be talking many, many files here, so bringing them back on a file-by-file basis as per above would lead to madness. Tim SAS Sys Admin
