Rearranging path on Subversion made history disappear

Postby Håkan B » Thu Jan 13, 2011 1:31 pm

We had to reorganize the folder structure on our Subversion server.
So we unlinked our database, and then linked it back on to the new path.
Suddenly we don't have any history!
The history is still there if you watch it in the Repo-browser (TortoiseSVN).
When looking at the Log Messages (History) in the Repo-browser, there is a Checkbox called "Stop on copy/rename".
Checking/unchecking this Checkbox makes the "history" appear/disappear.
It seems that SQL Source Control consider this setting on (guessing).
How to get the history back again?

Thanks for your post.

Unfortunately at the moment we don't support retrieving the history for objects that have been moved like this.

Because Tortoise can do it (with the tick-box you mention) it is possible we could add this in the future. Could I ask you to add it as a request on our uservoice forum for Source Control? You'll find it here

If plenty of other users vote up this option, it will get considered for inclusion in a future release.

Thanks for that - hopefully other users who would like to see this implemented will add their vote :)
