Working Copy Format

When a SVN working copy is loaded, Syncro SVN Client first checks the working copy's format. If it is a SVN 1.6 format, the admin data of that working copy is loaded and displayed in a tree like form in the view using the icons specific to the status of each resource: normal, unversioned, modified, etc. If it is the old format (SVN 1.5, SVN 1.4 or SVN 1.3), a confirmation dialog is displayed allowing the automatic conversion of the working copy to the new format, that is the SVN 1.6 one.

If you select the Never ask me again checkbox before pressing the Yes button, then the Automatically upgrade working copies to the client's version option is automatically checked. From now on, all other older version working copies will be automatically updated to the latest version.

The format of the working copy can be downgraded or upgraded at any time with the Upgrade and Downgrade actions available in the Tools menu. These actions allow switching between SVN 1.4, SVN 1.5 and SVN 1.6 working copy formats.
