Restores a file with (missing) status to your project. To locate such files, use the AccuRev Search/Status View.

The Populate command copies the version currently in the workspace stream (in the AccuRev repository) to the workspace. For more information, see What’s the Difference between Populate and Update? in the AccuRev Technical Notes.

Running the Populate command displays a dialog box with two options:

Recursive For each item in the list that is a directory, perform a Populate command on that element and on all elements below it.
Overwrite For each item in the list that is a file, replace the file (if any) currently in your workspace. If this checkbox is not selected, no files will be overwritten.

Click OK to proceed with populating files.
