I am experiencing an odd behavior, and am not sure whether it is "operator error".
I am using VisualSVN 1.7.7 and TortoiseSVN 1.6.8 on Windows Vista 32bit with VS 2008. Upon adding a project to SVN via VisualSVN, I then made some changes and committed them successfully. At that point, I (mistakenly) created a "tags" folder inside the trunk folder, and created a Tag inside the tags folder. Realizing that I wanted the tags folder at the same folder level as the trunk, I went into the RepoBrowser and moved the folder there. After continuing to commit changes, I attempted to create a branch, only to be told I had local modifications in my working folder. This seemed odd, as I had just committed everything and Updated my working copy.
Upon checking with TortoiseSVN in Windows Explorer--where I noted the icon overlays were missing--I was informed the Solution file (*.sln) was New to the trunk. This seemed odd, as the Solution file was created years ago, way before I added the file to SVN today.
I went ahead and Added it in TortoiseSVN, Updated, and tried again to create the branch with the same result.
I then checked, and TortoiseSVN now reports that "svn:ignore" has been modified, which truly seems strange.
I am now thoroughly confused, and would like some help getting to the point where I can create a branch off the trunk that will include the same changes as the tag I created; to my thinking, the trunk and tag should be the same at this point. I suspect I have done something wrong, but am not sure what, other than the previously-noted creation of the "tags" folder in the wrong place; however, I thought I understood that moving it in the RepoBrowser would fix that problem.
Thanks for any help,
