RE: Accidentally deleted main trunk in repository

Thank you for your reply, Jean-marc.

I have not committed but I still cannot revert to the version before the delete. 75 was the delete, 74 was the folder addition, 73 is the last good working revision.

I can however checkout version 73 which was the last good version. I can see the history up to 75 under the top level repo folder, but I can't get back the main development folder which was lost after version 74. If I could delete version 74, and 75 I think it would work. But there is no delete option in the repo browser, nor in the log messages. I have tried the revert under the working directory without success. I can go directly to the repo and put in 73 as the Head and see the folder /trunk but there is no way to delete 74 or 75.

If you have not committed: just do a revert on the workign copy.

If you have committed: Start the repository browser, change to the revision prior to the committed delete and your trunk should be visible again. You should be able to pull that version into your working copy & commit again. (sorry for not being able to provide an exact recipe at the moment, I do not have TSVN available on my current environment).

The TSVN manual probably provides some pointers too on how to undo changes from a specific revision.

Good luck.
