Using Tortoise browser to delete unwanted files in repository

One filename to be deleted from repository uses spaces in filename


Tortoise GUI can delete a single file with spaces in filename without issue


Tortoise GUI can delete multiple files without spaces without issue


Deleting multiple files from repository with at least one file having spaces
in the filename causes Tortoise GUI to throw an error because of
misinterpreted spaces in URL translation.


Error thrown states that the file does not exist. URL shows name as %2520
not %20



Workaround is to delete all files with spaces one at a time.
