Sounds like a bug to me, but not in TortoiseSVN but in the Subversion
client library used by TortoiseSVN, so it should be reported on the
Subversion users mailing list. At least when using an update or switch
with depth of "Fully recursive", I'd expect it to bring the folder back
in my opinion (I tested it and it did not).

If the subfolder is deeply nested (especially not a direct child folder
of your working copy root) and its immediate parent does not contain any
uncommitted changes or other files you want to keep, you can update the
immediate parent of that subfolder with depth "Only this item", cleanup
your working copy when done, and then update it again with depth "Fully
recursive" (Tested it and it worked for me). However, if the subfolder
is a direct child of the root, a fresh checkout will be faster.

Michael
