Re: [TSVN] Deleting directories (physically, then commit)

Create the directory with the same name at the right place (it'll not be versioned), then right-click -> TSVN Checkout, select the full path to that directory and as a result you'll have the folder back as it has to be. Then do a TSVN delete.

I did this a couple of times :D
