HomeDeveloper WorkspaceSynchronising the WorkspaceHow do I get a deleted file back?

5.3. How do I get a deleted file back?

I have a file which was not checked out but has been deleted. How do I get the latest version again using PureCM? I tried doing an 'Update to Latest' and a 'Revert' but it is still missing.


If you right-click the file and select 'All Tasks | Synchronise' this will launch the 'Synchronise Details' dialog. Check the 'Force the latest revision to be written to disk' checkbox and press 'OK'. This should create the latest version of the file.

Alternatively you can run 'Check Consistency'. Click on a Workspace or Workspace Foler and run 'Check Consistency', or use 'pcm consistency --missing'.
