Re: Retrieving dead files from the Attic

Did you commit the file to the Attic? i.e. cvs ci myRepoPath/Attic/myFile.txt
Or did you commit to a branch but not to main trunk (or vice-a-versa)?

If the second is the case, then you can just merge the file from the
branch to the main trunk:
cvs co myRepoPath/
cvs up -j branch_name myRepoPath/myFile.txt

(Note the lack of Attic in the path)
