Hi Neeraja,

When you perform an 'add a.txt' immediately after a 'remove a.txt', the file a.txt is resurrected.
Normally, after 'remove' the deletion of the file has to be confirmed using 'commit'.
After committing a remove, you can create a new a.txt and add this file to CVSNT as any new file.

In stead of performing a remove, you can consider the following actions:
1. make a.txt editable
2. delete a.txt from the sandpit
3. put your new a.txt in place in this sandpit
4. commit this new a.txt
