Hi Todd,

This can indicate that your working copy depth is no longer set to
'infinite'. Ever since SVN supports 'sparse checkouts' (1.6 if I am
not mistaken) it is possible to do a partial checkout, which is
respected by updates.

However, until TSVN 1.6.3 there were some cases where the depth could
unintentionally change, losing its 'infinite' value. To restore the
working copy depth to 'infinite', do an 'Update to Revision', choose
HEAD and select the 'fully recursive' option.

The latest version of TSVN should work OK in this respect (i.e. it
will not re-introduce the issue, but it will not automatically reset
existing sparse configurations).

Yes, that works too, but can be time consuming for large working copies.
