something wrong with commit -- I don't want to screw this up

Hi, newbie TSVN here,

I am commiting a large working copy from my local drive to an svn repo
also on my local drive via svnserve. Think of this as an import
(perhaps I should have used Import, but I did not).

The commit failed, but I don't recall the exact error message (sorry).

The state of the working copy is that most folders are up to date (green
check), but some have only add icons on them. When I do a commit to put
these folders in the repo, I get an error saying "File alread exists".
I don't think the contents of these directories are in the repo because
by size the repo is a few gigs smaller than I would expect.

Something clearly went wrong so that the states of the repo and working
copy are not in sync.

Any ideas on what went wrong or how to correct this?

More info: Vista, newest version of TSVN. I did the commit like this: I
assembled all my files in c:\perk, created a new repo in c:\svn\perk,
checked out the perk repo into c:\perk, and then did a huge commit of
c:\perk to svn\perk. About 2/3 of the way through the commit, I got an
error, but it also said "Commit completed", so I thought perhaps
everything was OK. On further inspection, I found that 5 or 6 specific
folders were in this strange out-of-sync-state. They have an add icon
and cannot be committed to the repo. Other folders neither have an add
icon or a green-check icon. I could successfully add and commit those.

thanks

perk
