Let's keep the discussion on the list so as to help others who may
encounter the same problem...

(The dialog is titled "SVN Commit... Finished!" and reads:

Error Are all the targets part of the same working copy?
Error Working copy 'K:\Programming\Desktop\Projects\App - To-Do
and Task
Error Manager\Sort\Test\data' is missing or not locked
Error Please execute the "Cleanup" command.


I don't use Windows or TortoiseSVN, but I can reproduce the problem
on the command line. The problem is that you have not informed
Subversion that you want to move the directory. Do not use your
normal operating system facilities to move or rename items (which is
what you did when you dragged the folder into the test folder);
instead, use Subversion commands. I believe TortoiseSVN has a rename
command that you can use for both moves and renames.
