“unadd” a file to svn before commit

I was in the middle of doing a recursive svn add/commit, and a folder which did not have the proper ignore properties was included. I’ve got about 100 uploaded binary files versioned now, but I haven’t committed yet.

What is the easiest way to ‘undo’ this, without deleting all the documents?

Try svn revert filename for every file you don’t need and haven’t yet committed. Or alternatively do svn revert -R folder for the problematic folder and then re-do the operation with correct ignoring configuration.

Use svn revert –recursive folder_name

svn rm –keep-local folder_name

Note: In svn 1.5.4 svn rm deletes unversioned files even when –keep-local is specified. See http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2009-11/0058.shtml for more information.

For Files – svn revert filename

For Folders – svn revert -R folder

Full process (Unix svn package):

Check files are not in SVN:

> svn st -u folder 
? folder

Add all (including ignored files):

> svn add folder
A   folder
A   folder/file1.txt
A   folder/folder2
A   folder/folder2/file2.txt
A   folder/folderToIgnore
A   folder/folderToIgnore/fileToIgnore1.txt
A   fileToIgnore2.txt

Remove “Add” Flag to All * Ignore * files:

> cd folder

> svn revert --recursive folderToIgnore
Reverted 'folderToIgnore'
Reverted 'folderToIgnore/fileToIgnore1.txt'

> svn revert fileToIgnore2.txt
Reverted 'fileToIgnore2.txt'

Edit svn ignore on folder

svn propedit svn:ignore .

Add two singles lines with just the following:


Check which files will be upload and commit:

> cd ..

> svn st -u
A   folder
A   folder/file1.txt
A   folder/folder2
A   folder/folder2/file2.txt

> svn ci -m "Commit message here"
