### Note

For an explanation of the role of committing changes from a working copy, refer to the Understanding the Subversion process recipe, earlier in this chapter. To learn how to apply other users' changes to your working copy, refer to the previous recipe Updating a working copy and resolving conflicts using TortoiseSVN.

## Exporting a working copy using TortoiseSVN

This recipe explains how to export files in a working copy to a new location. This can be especially helpful when we come to package a release.

### How to do it...

• SVN Ex port to here: Exports the versioned files and folders to the new location (without the .svn metadata)

• SVN Ex por t all to here: Exports all of the files and folders to the new location (without the .svn metadata)
