It appears that all the offending files I have found so far are *.dcu (Delphi Compiled Units) I am deleting them from the repository as they should not be in the CVS anyway. This is a binary file, so I am concerned that I will come across different binary files with the same problem. It will be a long night for me :P I am now endeavoring to manually repair my modules using trace to identify the offending file, and deleting it from the repository. Do another checkout with trace and repeat steps :) Please let me know if this is alright to do. I have reverted to CVSNT 2.5.03 as it was running a lot faster than 2.4.03 on my machines. Thank you for your help and suggestions. Regards, Sean B
