RE: Continue checkout / update despite error?

Yes, I can reliably reproduce it and I do assume that the path length was
exceeded because this error does occur even if I perform a checkout into the
root folder of a drive (e.g. checkout target d:\)
The repositories in question have been created via Tortoise repo browser
which doesn't seem to have a problem with REALLY long path names.
But now I need to perform a checkout of these repositories and don't want
this process to end only because the SVN client stumbled across a too long
path name.
Any idea?

Can you reproduce this reliably?
If yes, then you are probably exceeding the maximum path length of 260
characters. You could try to checkout into a directory further up in your
directory structure to prevent this.
If no, then it's probably a virus scanner which is locking the files. Try to
deactivate it.

This change would need to be made in the subversion library, not
TortoiseSVN. But this would first need a concept how to report to the user
that the working copy is not complete.
