RE: Not able to import some files!!

I have a new repository created and importing some existing code which was
not under CVS control into this new repository.
while importing, its importing the files without .bak extension, and not
reflecting the files in CVS Repository with .bak extension.
I don't find any cvsignore file in CVSROOT directory.

Have a look at the cvsignore file in the CVSROOT directory.
It lists all file extensions of files cvs should ignore.
.bak are usually backup files created by an editor and you
are usually not interested to keep such files.
But if you are, delete the *.bak line in cvsignore.
