Sorry for taking notice "so late".

Stefan, I can't get what you describe to be honest.

There is a sparse checkout as I can see if I unfold the tree-view and observe all checkboxes. That means to me I got all necessary information on my local machine.

So I see no need to fetch recursively data in the repro browser. Currently it is that way. I get files recuresively I don't want.

Doing an "update" gets the latest version of my sparse checkout or structures that changed.

In the next step a simple way would be to unfold by default the complete shown tree view down to the level I got files in my sparse checkout. With this view my wanted behavior is already working well.
A manual unfold of all directories and subdirectories takes a long time and is boring.

- So is there a way to implement this automatic "unfold" function?

btw. we are using the SVN not only for code but for related independent documents. The sparse checkout keeps the structure of the repository on my local machine and reduces the risk to take code with me I don't want to touch and I "should not have available" localy.

Thanks to all for your attention.
