Re: Unassociating files from TortoiseSVN

If the working copy is so messed up that 'Clean Up' does not work,
your only recourse it to check out a new working copy and move any
modified files over to it. It the file is locked, than someone else
has use subversion to set a lock on the file --- this prevents
multiple people from changing a binary file at the same time. See the
manual for more details. I've never worked with locked files, so I
have not tips there.

You can also use the 'Repository Browser' function to look at an work
with the repository directly -- with out the need to check out a
working copy. This is also the easiest way to fix problems if someone
from UNIX client checks in a file that conflicts in windows (illegal
character or creates a name-case conflict).
