First apologies, for I have done this the wrong way round and reported
---- On Windows(Vista) it is possible to mount a partition (partition on the local / build-in drive) as a folder, instead of assigning it a drive letter. In my setup I partitioned the build-in harddisk, making 2 partitions: partition 1 has the drive-letter C: partition 2 is mounted as C:\data (C:\data has to be created as empty folder first, then the partition can be mounted) If I try to checkout (new checkout) of a repository into C:\data I get: - A warning which is correct: the folder is not empty (because there are some system folders, such as volume-info and recycle bin). I confirm that I still want to continue and this does work - An error (which I believe to be a bug) C:\data' already exists and is not a directory Similar if I copy (including hidden .svn folders) an existing checked out repository into C:\data some svn function (such as update or log) do no longer work (they still work on individual sub directories). If you try "show log" on a repository copied into such a folder, tortoise claims "'C:' is not a working copy" => despite executing the command on "C:\data" (again subfolders in c:\data (that are part of the checkout) do work Best Regards MartinReceived on 2010-03-15 16:54:23 CET
