I am currently using TortoiseSVN for version control. I want to convert to Git so I though TortoiseGit would be the easiest move.

How do I convert my repository to a Git one while preserving all history?

You can use git-svn. There are detail instructions here. This doesn't have anything to do with Tortoise, though.

I feel a schmuck for not finding this with Google. I'll give it a look. Thanks. – Shaihi Mar 4 '10 at 17:13
TortoiseGit supports git-svn now, including cloning SVN repos. – Kleist Jan 12 '11 at 9:41
