A GUI tool for removing committed files from a Mercurial repo's history.
HgErase v1.0 for Windows (July 2014)
HgErase provides a simple way to remove files from a Mercurial repository, including files which were committed long ago in the repo's history.
To use HgErase, you need to specify three parameters:
1. Source Repo
2. Committed Files/Folders to Remove
This should never corrupt your repositories, because the processing is handled by Mercurial's built-in
convert extension. HgErase just makes it easier for you by automating the creation of a filemap, enabling the
convert extension, running
hg with the proper parameters, and renaming your generated (and backed-up) repo folders.
HgErase is currently available for Windows only.
This software is free to use at your own risk.
Always back up your projects!
