TortoiseSVN FAQ Solution Improvement

To Whom It May Concern:

On your TortoiseSVN FAQ, at http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/faq.html,
there is a question: http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/faq.html#cantmove2

In addition to the suggestion given there, I discovered a fix shared
by many other users, including myself which can be found here

And I quote:

1. Click the start menu button, then click in the text box to begin a search.
2. Type in “windows index”
3. Click on “Indexing Options” that should come up in the search (this
can also be found in the Control Panel, if you change the View by to
Large or Small icons. Not sure what it’s categorized under, though)
4. When the Indexing Options box comes up, Click on the Modify button.
This will pop up an Indexed Locations dialog, where you should see a
list of some “locations”, with your hard drive(s) being in the list.
5. Expand the desired hard drive, down to the root folder of the files
you’re using SVN with, and make sure the box is unchecked. It was
checked for me here, even though the folder option was as I described
in my last post. Also note that the hard drive will most likely be
collapsed, and will have its box unchecked, even though once you
expand it, you may find checked boxes.

For example, my projects are located in my
C:\Users\Name\Documents\VS2008\Projects\ folder and each of the
folders in here were checked in the Indexed Locations dialog. After
unchecking the appropriate folders here, which is where my working
copy of SVN’d projects are, everything seems to be working the way I
expect it to.

I hope this helps anyone else out there still suffering from this
crippling problem.

If you could update the FAQ I'm sure this would help a lot of us
Windows 7 users.

Many thanks,
Darryl Pentz
