RE: TortoiseSVN - Issues when working in a sub-dir within a WC - "svn: warning: W155007: '.' is not a working copy"

Hi, Stefan.

My user is part of the Administrators group, so I do have full access to the folder.

In any case, if it was some kind of permissions issue, why would things change just by “climbing” up and down the checkout folder tree?

I’ve attached a screen capture to show what I mean…

Regards

So you're using Win7, and your working copy is in a folder on the c
drive (not in c:\users but a separate folder).
--> make absolutely sure that you have full access rights to that
folder. If you haven't added yourself with full access rights to that
folder before, then you do not have full access rights because the
restricted access rights of the c drive root are inherited on that folder.
