NAME

       git-annex-upgrade - upgrade repository layout

SYNOPSIS

       git annex upgrade

DESCRIPTION

       Upgrades the repository to current layout.

       Each  git-annex  repository  has an annex.version in its git configuration, that indicates
       the repository version. If git-annex changes  to  a  new  layout,  you  must  upgrade  the
       repository before git-annex can be used in it.

       To see version information, run git annex version.

       Currently,  git-annex supports upgrades all the way back to version 0, which was only used
       by its author. It's expected that git-annex will always support upgrading  from  all  past
       repository  versions  -- this is necessary to allow archives to be taken offline for years
       and later used.
