Copy/Move branch with history + obliterate

21 November 2018 - 09:10 AM

Hello,

To avoid certain old branches being backed up nightly I would like to move them away to a separate manually backed up depot - however ideally I need to keep their commit history too.

If I do a copy/move/integrate the new depot/branch is at revision one with no commit history in place, furthermore, so that old location wasn't still hidden and backed up I would need to obliterate it.

Is what I want possible?

Since the majority of our branches have been integrated/branched from earlier branches will obliterating a branch earlier in the chain upset the integrity of later branches?

Also, my understanding from the docs is because these branches have been integrated I'm not able to archive them?

Thanks,
David
