That file:// URL is certainly wrong. There should have been the drive
letter in it.

Looks like a bug, but if it is reproducible one will need a step-by-step
recipe to get it fixed.

Thus far:
1. What exactly version of TortoiseSVN you are using? Try with the latest one:
either with 1.5.9, or with 1.6.2 (that is being published right now,
already has it)

2. Check repository URL of your working copy (WC).

Use "Properties" command in Windows Explorer for any folder or file
in your WC and look at the Subversion tab there.


You can use the Relocate command to fix it, if it is wrong,


3. I strongly advise you against using file:// protocol. Try learning
how to run svnserve. It is rather easy.

Though you will need to have subversion command-line server tools
installed in order to have the svnserve program.


Best regards,
