view unchanged files for commit

Is it possible to view the entire file tree for a given commit including any unchanged files without having to check anything out?

No. Getting a copy of all the files for a particular commit is pretty much the definition of checking out.

If you want to view all the files for a particular commit while still having access to whatever commit your current branch is on, the only way I've figured to do it is to have two local repos.

Thanks Seth. This seems to be very easy to do with Git Extensions and Smartgit so I'm suprised that it isn't possible.

Thanks anyway


It really is a shame that the very nice option "Open selected version" is available only on modified files. It would make sense to view all files so that we can open any files from a given commit. Sometimes it is hard to find when a given file was last changed.

You can view all current files, then right-click the one in question and select "Log selected...". This will show you the list of commits that modified that file.
