Re: Error on update - can't copy x to x.tmp.tmp

From: Philip TruelyUnknown <plt_lyris_at_yahoo.com>

I have tried completely deleting the client-side directory and forcing a full update and the problem still comes up. I have also tried a fresh checkout and it gives the same result.
   
  I'm not running any virus checkers. :-(
   
  Is there any way to directly modify the repository to remove this bad entry? I'd even be fine to just completely remove the last commit, if that was possible.
   
  Thanks

Might you have 2 files in the same directory with the same name,
differing only in case?

Do you have an on-access virus scanner running, and can you disable it
or tell it to ignore .svn directories?

Can you check out a fresh working copy from the same URL?
