Re: Recovering from an TortoiseSVN crash

In the case where a svn operation is interrupted in the middle, its best to
attempt to do a svn cleanup first, as that might actually pick up where it
left off and finish the operation. Checking out a fresh working copy is
probably the best method as long as you didn't have a bunch of modified
files in those directories that you'd have to copy back over. Subversion
always marks files with modified time as whenever you checked them out or
updated them.
