git-annex-direct(1)          General Commands Manual         git-annex-direct(1)



NAME
       git-annex-direct - switch repository to direct mode

SYNOPSIS
       git annex direct

DESCRIPTION
       Switches a repository to use direct mode, where rather than symlinks to
       files, the files are directly present in the repository.

       As part of the switch to direct mode, any changed files will be
       committed.

       Note that git commands that operate on the work tree will refuse to run
       in direct mode repositories. Use git annex proxy to safely run such
       commands.

       Note that the direct mode/indirect mode distinction is removed in v7 git-
       annex repositories. In such a repository, you can use git-annex-unlock(1)
       to make a file's content be directly present.  You can also use git-
       annex-adjust(1) to enter a branch where all annexed files are unlocked,
       which is similar to the old direct mode.
