Re: strange entry in a dir, cannot be deleted

Hello Gilbert,

Might want to try again, from the Win32 command line, but this time, use
the actual ASCII codes. Here's what I propose:
svn delete "https://.../gamesales/

Then, hold down your left Alt key, and on your numeric keypad, type 128.
This is the decimal code of %80, which is 0x80. Here's the table to use:

%80 = 128 (ă)
%ed = 237 (Ţ)
%f9 = 249 (Ę)

Then, close the quote and execute the command.

What you are seeing is the URL encoded form of the ASCII characters named
above.

Hope that helps !
Franšois
