RE: TortoiseSVN not displaying expected context menu commands

Hi Simon,

Thanks for the response.

I did already checkout the empty folder in the repository over the top of the existing folder and accepted the warning about the folder not being empty. The top-level folder shows the green tick overlay icon so it has been checked-out yet I still only have a limited set of options in the TSVN context menu.

You missed out step 2 which was to checkout the empty folder in the
repository over the top of your existing folder structure. TortoiseSVN
checkout is not in the TSVN sub-menu by default, it is above the
TortoiseSVN item in the main context menu.
