To put files and directories under version control use the Add option ( Alt+A) ). The selected item is scheduled for addition to repository in the next commit operation.-> (
Following the Add operation the item status is changed from "-unknown-" to "added". When adding folders to the repository, files contained by the folder are not automatically added to the repository. This called a non recursive. They can be added in a separate Add operation following the addition of their folder. Similarly, files contained in a folder that has not been added to the repository cannot be added. Should you wish to add a folder and its' contents to the repository, use a Recursive Addition.
