Way to delete all history for a specific file without breaking all history for all repo?

Recommended Posts

@diegohb, you can't delete the history for a file but you can archive its content, the same it's explained at your link can be done by using the "cm archive" command.

Imagine you submitted some dark secrets to the repository, you can do the following:

cm archive C:\wks\mysecret.png#br:/main#0 -c="big trouble" -f="Z:\mySecretFileDst"

And you will extract the info from the repository, actually from the database, the only place where the data is located after the command is where you choose to dump it... You can then remove it and nobody will be able to know what was inside the "mysecret.png" file.

Check the online doc for further info: https://www.plasticscm.com/documentation/administration/plastic-scm-version-control-administrator-guide.shtml#Chapter10:Archivingrevisions
