Re: [TSVN] Missing .snv/tmp folders

OK sorry about the attachment, very embarrassing ... and this entire
thread as it's likely to be just noise.

More info: This problem occurs when I delete a email _folder_ from
within the email client (Thunderbird).

When I RTFM I see that I am able to delete files from outside of TSVN,
"...it doesn't really matter, if you forget to delete the file with
TortoiseSVN as you are supposed to do." and they show up as being
deleted on next commit but it seems as though I'm running into trouble
due to Thunderbird deleting entire folders from my working copy.

Is this right? and if so am I right in thinking that what I'm trying to
do is outside the scope of SVN and should use something else to keep
backups of my email?

Regards

Rennie
