Tortoise Tips

When using Tortoise SVN and want to get a copy of an svn repository somewhere, it’s easy (apparently not for me .. took me a few searches of forums to discover this).

  • Create a directory (easy-peasy).
  • Right-Click and locate the Tortoise Menu (again, easy).
  • Choose the Export option.
  • Enter address of repository.
  • You’re good to go, things will start downloading.

Now, you’re rightly wondering just what point this little tip has. Well ..

I kept choosing Import. It made sense, I want to import to my directory from their directory. And I kept coming to a username/password deal that had me stumped.

Of course, it’s the opposite. What you are really doing is exporting from their directory to yours.


p.s. First post on new hosting. Whaaaahoooo.
