I wish to strongly support this feature request. For the umpteenth time I was shot in the leg by TortioseSVN unbiddenly restoring files I deleted earlier from the IDE when I did an "update" without remembering to mark those files as deleted first. It is quite awkward when you need to look up all those files to delete them again, so a way to undo the damage directly would be nice.

It would be even better if it would be possible to switch off this restoring of files. Why is that done in the first place? I see two possible reasons for missing files:

1. Deliberate deletion by the user. Then restoring them on update is certainly not what the user wants.

2. Accidential deletion. Then "revert" us your friend - why optimize for this rare case?

Am I missing something here?

Thanks for providing this excellent software! I am a long time happy user of TortoiseSVN.

Best regards,

Hans-Peter Störr
