Copy Within Repository

With Modify|Copy Within Repository you can perform copy operations that take place entirely within a repository. This is for instance a convenient and fast way to create repository tags/branches.

Select the Repository within which the copy should be performed. Copy From and the Source Revision specify the copy source. For Copy you can either select to copy To or to copy Contents Into. In case of copy To, the source will be copied into Directory with its name set to With Name (last component of the path). For copy Contents Into, the contents (files and directories) of the source will be copied directly into the Directory with their corresponding names. Because the copy is directly performed in the repository, you have to specify a Commit Message.


This copy operation is in fact no local operation, as it requires no working copy. Due to its close relationship with the other copy operations we have nevertheless put it into the chapter ‘Local Modifications’.
