you are apparently our guru regarding perforce.

Assume that I've done a `p4 sync'.  Now, by mistake, I delete file
`foo' from my harddisk.[*]  Coming from CVS I expect that calling `p4
sync' again restores the deleted file.  But this is not true!  p4 says
`File(s) up-to-date'.

What is the proper command to force p4 to synchronize not only my
(virtual) workspace with the depot but my workspace with the data I
really have on my harddisk?


[*] I use `mc' where it is rather easy to remove read-only files.
