To move a file or folder using TortoiseSVN, you must right-click and drag
the item. When you let go of the right mouse button in the target location,
you'll get a pop-up menu which lets you select what you want to do (copy,
move, etc.). This is described in the TortoiseSVN help file, but isn't
obvious (for all other operations you right-click and select from the menu
- you don't right-click and drag.)
