Thanks for the explanation...

I guess I didn't "add" from the root folder since it was an sdk folder that already had an include folder with some files in it but the new adds included both new files/subfolders there as well as in another new subfolder and I always thought of "Add" as being a "virgin" add (eg everything below would be new, not a mix).

The "add" function from the commit/check-for-modifications dialog is intended to 'correct' missing adds. If you have to add a lot of files at once recursively (because you have a new folder with lots of other unversioned folders in it), then you should use the "Add" function from the explorer->TortoiseSVN->Add submenu. That one will show up a special "Add" dialog, showing *all* files recursively which you then can add in one step.

Still, you *can* add all files from the commit/check-for-modifications dialog as you discovered. But those dialogs are not meant to show unversioned files in unversioned folders, because usually those files are uninteresting for a commit or for checking the state of your working copy, and therefore just would clutter those dialogs.
