Discarding Obsolete Files: CVS Remove


Remove a file from the current branch. The file will still be available when retrieving an older revision or tag.

  1. To remove one or more files from the CVS repository select the desired files and/or folders to remove and right-click on them.

  2. Select CVS → Remove from the context-menu. TortoiseCVS performs the removal and shows a Tortoise Tip that reminds you that you must commit the removal to finish the process.

  3. Finally, invoke the CVS Commit command on the folder (or a parent folder).

  4. When another user now performs an Update, CVS will remove the file(s) from the sandbox.
