That error message can also occur if there are two files in the
repository with the same name but only differing in case (e.g. FILE.txt
and file.txt). Make sure you don't have such two or more files in the
repo because Windows can't deal with those.

Another possibility is that the replication didn't work properly. Maybe
the file was/is empty and the replication doesn't copy empty files?
