What type of file is it? With binary files (such as word documents)
there is no per line mergine, and thus if any portion of the file has
changed, it will cause a conflict.

The diff for Word documents only works because of a vb script. If you
go into the TortoiseSVN uynder the "External Programs\Diff Viewer"
click the advanced button. In there is where it defines the vbs to run
to diff .doc files. If you want to diff any other binary format
files, you need to add their extension and some program capable of
diffing them.
