Workspace Revision at Higher Number than Head Revision

« Go Back

Information

 
Problem

P4V is displaying a file in my workspace at an impossible revision, such as "#33/1".

Solution
P4V displays workspace revisions as "#have revision" / "#head revision". For example:
test.txt #3/4

This numbering indicates that the local workspace has synced revision #3 of 4 possible revisions. The #have revision (#3 above) can never be greater than the #head revision (#4). 

However, if the first number (#have) is bigger than the second number (#head), there might be an inconsistency in the Perforce database. For example, you might see something like the following in your P4V display:
test.txt #33/1

If you see such a result, there is likely an inconsistency in your Perforce database. For information on how to test for and repair database table inconsistencies, see the KB article entitled P4D "-xx" Flag.
 
Note: Database inconsistency issues can result in data loss if not addressed correctly. Contact Perforce support if you have any questions or concerns.
