It happened to me personally. On our test box, I made changes to our
website; deleted a couple unused pictures (right-click, Tortoise,
delete) and added a few updated pictures. I committed these changes and
all appeared well. But, when I went to update my local copy, only the
added files were changed; the log stated nothing about the deleted
If I looked at the files, they have a question mark icon on them, but
they're still there. If I right-click on them and try to look at the
SVN properties, there's is no information listed.

Usually, such as this case, I just update our web servers and the
programmers are the ones which make the changes. I store the local copy
on my PC so that I can easily compare and make the changes to webservers
The programmer had made changes to other files and removed this file
from the repository. When I updated the repository on my computer, it
said that it deleted the file but when looking at it locally, it was
still there and it had a question mark icon on it. Not sure what's

Seem to have an issue with the latest Tortoise SVN. If
someone deletes something from the repository and I update my local
copy, I just get a question mark icon on the file instead of Tortoise
deleting the file.
Anyone have this issue or know why this is happening?
I think that may happen if your copy of the file contains local
modifications. In that case Subversion leaves the file in order to not
lose data that cannot be restored.
