Hi Stephan,
I am not able to get a fresh checkout from the repositoy.
Please see attachment for error messages.

1.I created a new folder for my fresh checkout.
2. I Right-Clicked on the folder and selected 'SVN checkout'
3. It did not like the pathname - same a yesterday - see attachment

4. I right-clicked on the repository on the server and tried to checkout a fresh copy
5. Same error as in 3. above

6. I tried to rename the server to a name with no uppercase characters
        i.e renamed from 'Research1' to 'col1'
7. tried to do a fresh checkout again.
8. Same error message as before in 3. above

9. I renamed the server back to 'Research1'
10. I made a copy of the repository with a different name and placed it in the same folder
        As the original repository
11. Tried to relocate to the new repository. But repo-browser still refers to the original repository.

12. I was able to make a fresh checkout from the second repository i.e. the copy of the repository.

13. While I am able to continue working, I have to deal with 2 repositories.

14. I have been trying to provide detailed feedback to help arrive at a solution quickly. I trust this makes sense to you -- I am completely lost as to why it should work on the Copy of the Repository.

15. I would like to move back to a single repository. Let me know if you need more data/feedback etc.

Yes, the urls are now normalized. You have to get a fresh checkout so the working copy has the correct url.
