I didn't see this reported in the bug database, nor did a casual web search turn this up:
When de-duplication is enabled on a Windows Server 2012 NTFS volume, the de-duplication engine replaces files that contain duplicate data with reparse points. Subversion then reports that those files have unexpectedly changed special status. For example:
PS I:\temp\packages-2> svn commit
Once the files have been deduplicated, the workaround is to disable deduplication on a folder, then copy the versioned controlled directory to the new location.
Enable deduplication on a Win2012 NTFS volume.
This is an archived mail posted to the Subversion Dev mailing list.
