recover from "This tree contains left-over files from a failed operation"

Asked by Gil.I on 2011-11-29

I tried to do "revert" to previous version and i get the following error

Run command: bzr revert -r revid:ido_heyvi-20111121095845-3d40u71ls59xn6mw
bzr: ERROR: This tree contains left-over files from a failed operation.
Please examine C:/Projects/P1/trunk/.bzr/checkout/limbo to see if it contains any files you wish to
keep, and delete it when you are done.

i looked in limbo directory and its empty

could someone help me recover from this error?

You need to just delete the whole directory.

bzr ought to only error out if there's something in it...

Yes, It also worked for me. I have renamed the folder limbo to limbo_1.
