I took your suggestion and moved the to another location so the path is shorter. I'm able to upload some folders in my project, but still encounter that message when I try to upload certain folders. Any other ideas?

I have been trying to do a commit but keep getting an error message that a file can't be opened/can't be found. I checked the file that Tortoise can't find/open and it does exist and doesn't look any different from other files that are committed with a problem. I'm using TortoiseSVN 1.6.3, Build 16613.
