Renaming or Moving Files: CVS Rename


Rename a file, and/or move it to a new location. The file will still be available under the old name and location when retrieving an older revision or tag.

  1. To rename one or more files select the desired files and/or folders to renamee and right-click on them.

  2. Select CVS → Rename from the context-menu.

  3. Enter the new name and/or location (as a relative path) of the files (if you have selected more than one item, you must enter a path).

  4. Click OK. TortoiseCVS performs the rename and shows a Tortoise Tip that reminds you that you must commit the rename to finish the process.

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

  6. When another user now performs an Update, CVS will rename and/or move the file(s) in the sandbox.
