Re: Sub folders not visible in Explorer

Hi, Simon, thanks for your reply.

First, I assure you I have read the SVN book, most of it. Well, much
of it, anyway. Which is why I'm puzzled at the difference between
what I see and what I expect.

I was going to get all elaborate with this, when I realized that
TortoiseSVN is operating flawlessly and since my question really boils
down to "Why does SVN create a "branches" directory if it's not going
to use it, instead storing all revisions, including those that create
a branch, reside in the repository database?", then the question
really isn't for you to answer.

So I apologize for taking your time.
