RE: Accidentally deleted main trunk in repository

Hi Wolf

Thank you for the steps but I have tried but it will not work. I get an
error saying that

Error File not found: revision 75, path '/trunk'

I get this when I try to use just one version or the two, 74,75.

Hi Robert,
I'm not sure if I fully understand Daniel's suggestion, maybe its only a
short cut to the merge procedure I describe below.

From my point of view you have to merge
all changes between r73 and r75 in reverse order.

* right-click the mouse on the root folder of your working copy
* select "TortoiseSVN > Merge..." and the Merge dialog opens
* check [*] Merge range of revisions, [Next >]
* Edit "URL to merge from" should contain trunk
  (change or select by browsing)
* "Revision range to merge" enter here 74-75 (yes! r74 and r75)
  or select the last two changes by browsing, click [Show log]
* check [*] Reverse merge, [Next >]
* (do a [Test merge] if you want)
* [Merge]

Now you have a working identically to the r73 revision ready for commit.
Do the commit entering a good log message and you're done. (now at r76)

Best Regards,
