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



NAME
       git-annex-upgrade - upgrade repository

SYNOPSIS
       git annex upgrade

DESCRIPTION
       Upgrades the repository.

       Each git-annex repository has an annex.version in its git configuration,
       that indicates the repository version. When an old repository version
       becomes deprecated, git-annex will automatically upgrade it (unless
       annex.autoupgraderepository is set to false). To manually upgrade, you
       can use this command.

       Sometimes there's a newer repository version that is not the default yet,
       and then you can use this command to upgrade to it.

       Currently, git-annex supports upgrades all the way back to version 0,
       which was only used by its author. It's expected that git-annex will
       always support upgrading from all past repository versions -- this is
       necessary to allow archives to be taken offline for years and later used.
