The thing is that i move it just like what peter said.
I right-click, drag, drop and do choose the svn move. then i commit, and
that works okay.

But on a different computer, if you do an update, it will delete the old
file and fetch the new file from the server.
I think it should be smart enough to know that it is the same file and
not delete it, but just move it locally.

I hope i was able to explain it better.

now I am not sure if this is a tortoisesvn problem of if it is an svn
problem

thanks
