If the content in your branch does not exist in your trunk, then yes, it
will be deleted and/or re-checked-out whenever you switch. (The point
of switch, of course, is to make your disk look exactly like the
branch.) Are you saying the same files exist in both your trunk and
branch but they're still being deleted/re-checked-out ?

If you could provide a command-line transcript of what you run and what
you expect it would make this easier to diagnose.

E.g.

svn co svn://myserver/repo/trunk
svn switch svn://myserver/repo/branches/mybranch .
