If I remember correctly TortoiseSVN 1.6.2 is based on Subversion 1.6.1,
which still had the bug that was fixed in Subversion 1.6.2:
  * set depth=infinity on 'svn add' items with restricted depth (r37607)

Another possible cause for this issue (but far less likely) is issue #3569
(http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3569): svn update
--depth <DEPTH> allows making a working copy incomplete

The first issue can be resolved by using 'svn update --set-depth infinity'
on the working copy (and is fixed in later clients). The second can only be
resolved by a new checkout and isn't fixed yet.

And of course it could be another issue, so if you have a different
reproduction recipe to show, please send it to this list. (In all cases I
heard it was one of these two reasons... and in most cases the working copy
was marked sparse long ago, without anybody noticing)
