Maybe you've accidentally deleted the (hidden) .svn folder inside the C
folder? Is is because of this folder that a folder is considered a
working copy. TortoiseSVN uses this folder to decide which overlays and
menu items it should display.

Did you add C in the same way as A and B? You have to actually add it
using Subversion's add mechanism. This way the C folder gets its own
.svn folder inside it. In any case, TortoiseSVN is often very slow in
updating its icon overlays. Closing the explorer window and reopening
sometimes helps. Also the shell's icon cache easily gets corrupted when
using TortoiseSVN. I find myself refreshing the cache at least once a
