RE: Retrieve lost file back

Thanks for the response.

Yes I tried to do multiple updates.

And the last time there was a conflict but only due to $Id$ so that is not too bad to fix, but is there a way or a workaround since I am in a tight spot as I want this file back in the directory as well as on the same note there are one more problem.

Some of the files from Windows machines were checked in to CVS. Now due to case insensitive ness on windows the file got into CVS as where it should have been 

now when I try

1) remove the file and add cvs complains that the file exists.
Similarly I have a file which should have been ( cvs 1.11 on solaris 7)

Please do help me with a way to get the files with proper names in the cvs working directory not in the attic since as per your mail multiple tries of update have probably made it impossible to bring back into the working directory. ( Would a physical move of the files with proper file name from attic into working directory in the repository help as a last resort).

Thank you once again for the help.

How can there be conflicts in this situation?  Did you already have a
version of the file in your working directory?

There is a bug in CVS where doing multiple updates on a resurrected file
removes the flag that tells CVS it needs to move it out of the Attic
when committed.
