I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. Dave has already cleared it up.

To sum everything up, TSVN's handling of unversioned files is confusing.
If you right-click an unversioned file in Explorer, you cannot revert
it. If you choose "check for modifications" on a folder with an
unversioned file in it, you cannot choose "revert" if you right-click
the file. If you select multiple files including unversioned items and
right-click, you can choose "revert", but the unversioned items are
deleted. I think TSVN should just ignore the unversioned files (i.e. not
delete them). This would make TSVN consistent with the command-line
client which will skip unversioned items if they are the target of a
revert operation.

Best wishes,
