# Windows drive letter in svn+ssh path

Hi,

I've read about how to specify a windows drive letter in a file:///
path, but I want to do this in a svn+ssh:// path and it's not working.
Am I missing something?

For instance, let's say I'm connecting to a repository through ssh on
a windows box, which is located on "E:\blah\My Repo/My Project". I
try something like the following:

svn co svn+ssh://user@example.com/E:/blah/My%20Repo/My%20Project

but I get the error:

svn: Can't open file '\e:\blah\My Repo\My Project\format': The
filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

I tried using a pipe (|) instead of a colon to separate the drive
letter from the rest of the path, but I got the same error.

Help is much appreciated.

Thanks,
Rob.
