I've been religiously committing several times a day, since I'm working hard and making many changes a day. Today I committed again and strangely enough I got an error saying that my working copy was out of date, which makes no sense considering that I'm the only one with access to that repository and I'm always working on the same computer on the same files -- so there's no way the version in the repository could be newer.

Normally if you've made local changes you get a warning telling you you'll lose them, but in this case I didn't get any error. Rather, tortoise deleted several files and overwrote other files with very old versions (that is, my local files were newer, and they were overwritten with older versions). I checked the commit log and found that according to tortoise the last commit happened a week ago. As I've said I've been committing very frequently, and in fact I committed just yesterday evening. On every commit I got a "commit successful" message.

If you clear the log cache (settings dialog->saved data->clear button
(for log messages, log dialog) and then show the log, is the last log
entry still a week ago?
If yes, then your repository was either restored from an old backup or
it got corrupted somehow. You might have to ask the repo provider for help.
