How so, will this not just look to CVS that i have modified all the source
since I checked it out

How is this any different that if I just edit files in the new sandbox I
would check out??

I could just copy my  old sandbox source over the new checked out sandbox
but I am also work with a dev tool that set a work area & I'd have to
reconfigre that as welll...

But then the Entries file in my old sandbox will point to versions that
don't exist in the restored
repository bcus it was from 2 days ago ??
