Re: Tortoise Revert issue

(1) In my example i did the revert by standing on the working copy top level folder and calling log from there.
The reverted element was a folder inside the structure. Like i mentioned, the merge itself worked ok (as shown by using external folders diff tool)
but the result of comparing latest-1 to working copy inside (by selecting compare to working copy from log) shown this strange result.

(2) You are right about that. Thanks.

If you want to revert a rename/move, you have to show the log dialog for
the parent folder. Reverting such a file alone won't work because the
rename/move involves two files (the old name/path and the new one).

Empty your trash bin once in a while. Deleting files from TSVN dialogs
always uses the recycle bin, and if that is full, it takes quite a while
to delete those files.
