greetings all!

   my name's jason, nice to meet you all. i'm just getting my feet wet with subversion, and tortoise has helped soooooo much with amazing documentation and a *great* client. i can really feel the love :)

i have a problem, i'm sharing it in the hopes someone can help, or it helps others :)


i currently have a working copy (d:\websites\myworkingcopy)

the structure of myworkingcopy is: the root of my website and subfolders (wordpress, images, etc.) (no trunk/branches/tags -- this working folder IS the trunk)

i also have a repository setup at this URL (svn.myrepository.com/repo)

the structure of the repository is trunk/branches/tags (i imported my data to the repository and it either decided to place the data in "trunk" or i specified it like so: svn.myrepository.com/repo/trunk during the import. (can't recall exactly.)

i checked out a working copy (d:\websites\myworkingcopy), added a file (xtrafile.txt) and comitted it. worked great.

i added another file (xtrafile2.txt), and it also worked great. everything green check marked, 2 new revisions in my log, perfect.

now i want to RollBack or Revert or Undo those 2 revisions so my working copy is back to square 1 with no "Xtrafiles.txt" in it.

it seemed sooo straight forward, choose correct parent folder, browse the log, right-click and "revert changes", or "revert to this revision" or even... "merge"? and that alters the working copy from what i understand and i just *commit* the working copy and it should work, yes?

i've tried everything and no matter what i do both the repository AND working folder still contain Xtrafiles.txt and the Revision# is still the same, and everything is Unmodified with No Chages To Commit.

thanks so much for reading, i love subversion and i am currently not benefiting from its awesomeness.

take care,
