NAME

       git-annex-reinit - initialize repository, reusing old UUID

SYNOPSIS

       git annex reinit uuid|description

DESCRIPTION

       Normally,  initializing  a  repository  generates a new, unique identifier (UUID) for that
       repository. Occasionally it may be useful to reuse a UUID -- for example, if a  repository
       got deleted, and you're setting it back up.

       Use this with caution; it can be confusing to have two existing repositories with the same
       UUID.

       Make sure you run git annex fsck after changing the UUID of  a  repository  to  make  sure
       location tracking information is recorded correctly.

       Like  git annex init, this attempts to enable any special remotes that are configured with
       autoenable=true.
