I already sent one email, but I figured you'd want details.
I have a working copy with of course several files and subdirectories.
I want to replace the contents of one of the subdirs with the contents of
another (and later I will edit the results).
So at the command line I execute "svn export --ignore-externals --force
That gives me the results that I wanted.
loweringcholesterol has three files int it plus three subdirs, each with
more files and subdirs in them.
If I instead right click on loweringcholesterol in Windows Explorer and pick
TortoiseSVN->Export and set the destination to be depressionremedy, when it
says it is complete a subdir of loweringcholesterol has been added to
depressionremedy but the new subdir is empty except for an empty images
subdir. The original images directory is full of images and subdirs. "svn
export --ignore-externals --force loweringcholesterol depressionremedy"
exports 516 files and sudirs, TortoiseSVN->Export exports one subdir with
one empty subdir in it. If I then TortoiseSVN->Export with "Export
unversioned files too", it exports everything including .svn subdirs which
defeats the purpose of exporting.
As far as I'm concerned TortoiseSVN->Export is completely broken, or at
least is completely broken in Windows Vista. I used to use
TortoiseSVN->Export all the time, it worked even though it was a little
anoying having to copy the contents of the exported folder up one level
since I never seem to need the folder I am exporting (I need it's contents)
but still I found it easier than typing everything into the command prompt,
for now I can keep using cmd and svn when I need to export, just thought you
would want to know that export is broken.
