I've set up a couple symlinks within a repository (for example) mapping `/src/static/scripts/` to `/src/Web/scripts/`.
This works fine within the codebase and has the desired effect.
However, this seems to have messed up SourceTree and I'm getting the error:
'hg status' failed with code 255:'abort: path 'src/static/scripts/<script-name>.js' traverses symbolic link 'src/static/scripts'
I don't seem to be able to run any command since this error pops up as soon as the respository explorer is opened. Is there a command I can run to solve this (I assume re-indexing the repo)? I also notice that there's no way to run such commands from "Bookmarks".
It's a confusing error, probably one that could be more specific to the problem. Basically, src/static/scripts 'used' to be a directory and now isn't. So the error is correct, but not exactly helpful. I *think* the solution is to get rid of the symlink for that specific case. You should validate both paths are correct first. There's a good discussion here about it which may shed some more light on your problem in specific. The first question to ask is whether the linked directory exists and move from there based on that resource.
