I’ve recently switched to Git after numerous issues with SVN, which I might rant about at some other time…. Since the switch I’ve needed to clean up some SVN checkouts on my computer so that I could move them into a Git repo instead. It’s really simple to do:
NOTE: Doing this will remove ALL the .svn folders/directories in the SVN checkout you select.
- Make a new bat file on your computer. (Just make a text document and change the extension to .bat)
- Open your file in a text editor and paste in the following command:
FOR /F "tokens=*" %%G IN ('DIR /B /AD /S *.svn*') DO RMDIR /S /Q "%%G"
- Save the file
- Copy the file to the root of the repository you want to clean
- Run the command and wait whilst it goes through and removes all the .svn directories
