Subject How to switch, or update, a file that exists only in a brnch ?
Date Wed, 26 Nov 2014 16:13:19 GMT

I have a couple of files that exist only in a branch which I’d like to have within my Working
Copy.  If the files exist in the Head I can use “switch” to change the WC instance from
the Head one to the branch one.  But if the file is not in the Head I can’t do that as Switch
only appears to work when a file is already in the WC as a checked-out file, and not if it
is absent, or present but not Controlled.

Or should I use Update to get this ?  In which case what syntax ?  As it seems to want to
update the whole folder to the Branch’s version.


PS. Using TortoiseSvn so also happy to receive answers indicating what to do within Tortoise.
