You should be able to do a fresh "Checkout" to another location and see
what the current situation is in the repository.
It's a much safer option to make changes locally to an up to date
working copy (WC) and commit then rather than using the repo browser,
because then your WC cannot be committed until you do a fresh update.
Just be aware too that file and folder names are case sensitive in the
repository but not on your Windows box.
