I added new content to my git annex repo on my laptop, in the usual way: copying the new dir into the repo, then cd into the new directory, 'git annex add .' and then 'git commit -m '. Everything went well, with no errors, which means that the files were correctly moved to .git/annex/objects/ and symbolic links were created in the new dir. But now, if I do 'git annex fsck .', I get an error for each file:

fsck <FILENAME> (fixing location log) (checksum...)

  ** No known copies exist of <FILENAME>
failed

Unfortunately, I am not able to reproduce the problem on a toy-example repository. This means that my git annex repo may be broken. How do I fix it? I use git v1.9.1 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and git-annex version: 5.20150406-gb2814bc

OK, in all honesty, I did a 'git annex sync' between the 'add' and the 'commit' above. But I synced with a clone of the repository that I keep on an external drive, which is less updated than my laptop. It is less updated because I always add content on my laptop and then sync/get from the external disk. So the sync did no harm, apparently.

Since this seems to be only a problem with messaging about accidentally marked dead repositories, I've made fsck mention when a file is only located in a dead repo, and I've made info tell when it's run in a supposedly-dead repo. done --Joey
