SVN, File Encryption & NTFS Flags

Firstly, apologies if this is the wrong discussion, but I thought it would be better targeted here, given that it's technical information I'm looking for.

Our Devs use Tortoise SVN 1.8 with great success, but we're having a ^potential^ issue with the interaction between SVN and the software we use to encrypt our disks with, 'Safend Encryption' and as a result we're seeing some files fail to decrypt properly after a while (please bare with me).

I've had a long running support case open with Safend and don't appear to be getting very far with them, but they've requested some technical information about Tortoise SVN and what NTFS flags it adds to the files that are created on the client when performing an update from the repository. Namely, whether Tortoise adds the 'Marked for Sync' or 'Marked for Deletion' NTFS flags. I've had a look at the architecture documents, but they don't appear to go down to the NTFS level.

I've be really grateful if someone could let me know what flags Tortoise sets, if it sets anything, or whether this is a crazy line of inquiry.

Many thanks,
