issue with mapped drives

Hi all,

We map a drive so that the path to our SVN files always remains the same. See this example where the whole M drive is actually under SVN.

i.e. M:/MyFiles/Folder1

The issue is then that windows treats your operations inside that mapped drive as if it was a network drive. This means that if you delete a file from the M:/ path it will be permanently deleted. Unfortunately atm this includes if Tortoise SVN does it on your behalf, perhaps due to a revert for example.

Hence, when an intern here used clean up and clicked all the boxes without understanding the consequences Tortoise SVN deleted all their uncommitted work permanently.

1. Any ideas on a way to recover the files? I have tried a few things already. The network drive aspect makes it difficult. It is difficult for us to use 3rd party programs as well due to our IT.

2. Could TSVN have an option to be more clever and still use the recycle bin in this situation?
