Some additional information: I just discovered that the ancestry information
error is only given when a file has actually been changed or added. So if
there are no updates for a folder on the SVN, then pressing update goes
fine. If there is something to get, then I get the ancestry error.
@Mark: The E disc contains lots of other data, and BigFolder is not the only
folder I did this to. There are around 10 more folders like BigFolder. So
mounting the entire disc won't work.
