Could it be that you messed the folders (by dragging/moving/renaming a
folder in the OS, instead of using svn/Tortoise commands)?

When cleanup does not work the only remedy I know is to discard the
broken subtree and to get a fresh one.

either a) checkout a fresh working copy
or b) delete the subtree and do svn update -- the missing folders
and files will be recreated.

1) The files committed to repository are still there. You may use
Repository browser dialog to look what is the state of your

2) The files that Tortoise deletes (when you do revert etc.) are
placed into Recycle bin. You may find them there.

3) TortoiseSVN has activity log (see "Saved Data" page in the Settings
dialog). If you can create a reproduction recipe based on those, it
might help.

4) It is always better to mention what exactly version of TortoiseSVN
and Subversion you are using (see its About dialog).
