Getting content of a dropped member knowing its archive

Hi,

I know two ways of getting the content of a member without having a valid sandbox for it (viewrevision and projectco).

But it does not work if the member is dropped.

As I know the archive for the member, the question is: I there a way to just get the content of the archive without using addfromarchive before (meaning don't disturbing the projects configuration) ?

Any ideas?

regards,

Veikko

I'm looking for this also, we are trying to replicate our history in Git.

I never tested this but

assuming the archive name points to the server locaction C:/project/sub1/sub2/member.c

my approach would be:

Create a "special" project on server e.g. C:/dropped/project.pj

REM add the dropped archive choosing a member name (bold) that resembles the original archive location

si addmemberfromarchive -P C:/dropped/project.pj --archive=C:/project/sub1/sub2/member.c c/project/sub1/sub2/member.c

si projectco --nolock C:/dropped/c/project/sub1/sub2/member.c ........

or

si projectco --nolock -P C:/dropped/project.pj c/project/sub1/sub2/member.c ........

This should leave the original projects configuration untouched.
