RE: Accidentally deleted main trunk in repository

I read the article thank you; I understand the principles... my problem is
that I cannot get any of the principles to work. I don't have SVN installed,
other than the TortoiseSVN implementation

I have followed the advice of each of the posts and none of them work.
I can't revert, the path is missing... which seems to me an error in the
revert function or missing functionality.

I can't copy from the last good copy which is 73 to a new version which
would be 76 because the path is missing

I can't reverse merge because the path is missing

I can check out the last good version and work with that version but

I can't commit the changes because before I can commit I have to update the
checked out copy first, but

I can't update the checked out version because there is a 'tree conflict'
since the path \trunk is missing

So this looks to me like a catch 22 situation

Is this a design error? If it is a procedure error, then what I would like
to do is find a working procedure to reverse the error but so far there
doesn't seem to be one. If it is a design error then I would like to know so
I can give up and build a new repository and start over again and not waste
any more time trying to regain what is irrevocably lost.

Please read
"Resurrecting Deleted Items" in the svn-book

That is the theory behind all of it.

Either merge your changes from rev.74, or do a copy from r74, not r73 as you
