Hello Stefan,

Thanks for the quick response and suggestion.
In a similar thread that seemed to work:
http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ds/viewMessage.do?dsForumId=4061&dsMessageId=2447608

On the other hand, my result is different. For me, this setting does work
as intended for Revert. This setting also prevents recycle bin activity
for right-click, delete. This is true for both modified and unmodified file case.
But for right-click, SVN Check for modifications, Show unversioned files, then
Delete of an unversioned file, I get the recycle bin activity.

By the way, thanks for grepwin. It is perfect.

Thanks,
Scott
