If you remember that you've been deleting files (or just as a matter of
course), do a "check for modifications" before you update.

This will show any deleted-outside-of-SVN files as "missing", and you
can tell SVN about the deletion at that point. Then they will stay
deleted when you do the update.

Unless you retrain yourself to do deletes/renames the "right" way (or
use an IDE plugin to help you), you'll have to fix this sort of thing up

Having said that, it would be nice if an SVN Update interactively
prompted on missing files by default and asked if they should be
restored or deleted (with Yes/No to All options, of course). Bonus
points if it can repair renames/moves too. Because people are forgetful. ;)
