Re: How to correct when .SVN directory accidently deleted

In general, you should NOT check in generated file or temporary files
to SVN. The point of SVN is to track you source code, not your object
files or binaries.

The correct thing to do is:
1. SVN delete the Release folder (and Debug, etc). SVN commit the
2. run VS build
3. when the Release folder comes back, do "Tortoise SVN -> Add to
Ignore List" on it.

Do the same thing for the other generated files. The massive NCB (VS
Intellisense) file comes to mind.
