RE: Understanding Obstructed

Hi J
 
'obstructed' means that an unversioned item is in the way of a versioned item. Read: a local file/folder which is not under version control has the same name as a versioned object in the repository. This is why the update fails on the obstructed objects.
 
To clean it up, move the obstructing objects out of the way and update your working copy. Also try to find out why the folders were getting in the way. Did you copy them manually? Were they created by your IDE? Should they be versioned at all?
 
Cheers
-Lübbe

        Subject: Understanding Obstructed
        
        
        I'm still kinda new to svn and tortoise and I'm not quite sure what this means...
         
        First, my setup. I'm on Windows Vista 64-bit. My svn repository is hosted on windows 2003 on a remote server. (I'm not really sure that matters, though.) I'm the only user and there is only one working copy.
         
        Lately I'm getting some folders that are being reported as "obstructed" when I check for mods and subsequent attempts to commit fail. I can't seem to find any good description of what "obstructed" actually means or how it happens and I'm not sure what I need to do to fix it.
         
        Any help is appreciated. Even if you can just point me to where, specifically, I can find these answers. Thanks.
         
        J
