Issue #2907 invalid

Shelve and unshelve dead slow in TortoiseHg 2.1.1 (Large repo)

created an issue


We are running Mecurial 1.8.2 and are running the 2.1.1 version of the client.

We have a repo with 177,000 files and 14,476 folders.

I have a number of files that needed to be shelved (around 50 files, around 20 MB) which I shelved. This exercise took around 20 minutes.

I then re-synchronised with our repo which included around 20 changesets with 440 odd file changes. This pull and update occurred fairly quickly, around 20 - 30 seconds.

I then went into the shelve option in the workbench, selected my shelve set and clicked to retrieve it. I have been sitting for 40 minutes waiting for the files to unshelve and it has yet to complete.

When I look at the task manager the tortoise application is certainly busy.

Is this a known issue? Surely it cannot take this long to unshelve files? Is there a setting that we may be missing on our side?

Thanks, Anton
