Re: How to correct when .SVN directory accidently deleted

You know: telling me what I should and should not check in is not what
I am asking here. That's the same answer as the car salesman telling
me to steer to the left when I break, after I told him that the car,
he is trying to sell me, veers to the right when I hit the break.

Here is a different example why I need an easier solution for the
folder being deleted: From Visual Studio I delete a Web Reference and
recreate it with same name. I need to do this, because when the WSDL
gets updated Visual Studio gets all confused and starts generating
errors in its Reference file. Also here Visual Studio deletes a
directory and TurtoiseSVN returns as error that the folder is

And note: I strongly suggest you check a version of the compiled
program. A few years later you are thankful, because you need the
program and you can't get it recompiled, because that latest version
of your compiler you installed last year doesn't play nice with the
old source code. (Examples: VB6 -> VB.NET and then again: Studio 2003 -
> Studio 2005)
