CVS Update Special...


Synchronizes a local sandbox with a CVS repository. See also Update.

  1. To update a folder either right-click on it or within it on the Explorer view (but not on any specific files) or to update one or more files select the files to update and right-click on them.

  2. Select CVS → CVS Update Special... from the context-menu.

  3. The Update Special Dialog will appear. Enter into the textbox labeled Get tag/revision/branch: either the Revision number (i.e. 1.3), Tag (i.e. release_1_1_0), or Branch (i.e. vendorx_branch) to change your sandbox copy to.

  4. The Progress Dialog will appear to provide a detail status of the files that are being updated by TortoiseCVS. By default this dialog will close after the operation is complete, unless it encounters a problem.
