How do I disable (or fix) VCS?

Answered

Rider is great, but it constantly tries to apply my moving files around and renaming folders etc. to my Mercurial repo, but for some reason has constant errors when doing so, and I end up with all of the files I moved marked as removed instead of renamed, and then I can't mark them renamed myself without reverting them or adding them (or however you get Mercurial to unremove a file).

How can I just turn VCS off. There does not seem to be any settings under the VCS menu, and there does not seem to be any VCS settings under File -> Settings (except for things specific to other VC systems like Git and Subversion).

Hello Dave Cousineauf
We can take a look at the error or if you want to disable Mercurical for a project, please go to Preferences | Version Control and remove the project directory from mappings.

Sorry, I somehow missed Settings -> Version Control...

I would post the error message, but all it says is "Rename failed Couldn't mark some files as renamed"

If you would like to investigate the issue with rename, please feel free to submit a YouTrack ticket with a test project attached at https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/IDEA 

Also you can try to run "Refresh" in local changes when you face such an issue and see if it helps.
