Subject RE: Parmently removing directory from server to make space
Date Thu, 04 Apr 2013 05:57:17 GMT
Hi Olli,

Thnaks for your support.

I ran into one small issue.

I need to know the folder structure of my dump file. Is their any
command to know that.

For example, my root directory is /E_Learning/Development/

I need to know the folder structure inside Development folder.

I cannot check it through tortoiseSVN because I have deleted few folders
from their and I need to know those deleted folders name.

Here the script (in the svn tar file) comes is really
handy. From my own experience with big dumps it is ways faster to
process the dump with this script and then grep for

Additional hint for Windows users:
 run svndumpfilter this way: python -u $path/
