Please describe the problem.
If I addurl file pointing to file:///C:/... it seems to work just fine, but then refuses to drop it stating that can't verify its presence.
Please see two screenshots (sorry for not cut/paste here since it was already was painful -- debugging under Virtualbox in remote vnc through debconf internet which for some reason drops for me quite often):
as screenshot shows, apparently wget is clueless about file:// targets on windows (while curl does fine) -- may be related ;-)
What steps will reproduce the problem?
addurl some file:///C:/ under windows pointing to existing file, and then try to drop that annexed file
What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?
windows 20150805 or so
Please provide any additional information below.
