Ok, the repository is on my D drive. I created the repository using TortoiseSVN. I am running Win7 64-bit. With the latest version on TortoiseSVN it initially worked and then one day when I started the computer all the icons were gone. I tried all the things mentioned online to fix the problem - none worked until I found one site where the author of a post mentioned the problem was with the new version of TortoiseSVN and discussed two potential workarounds: 1)Turn off default caching. This brings back the overlays but without the recursive operation they are essentially pointless. 2)Revert to the previous (1.6) release of TortoiseSVN - which I have now done and for the most part everything seems to be working as it should.

What other information do you need to start looking into this problem?
