# Apparent incompatibility with Synchronize It!

I've noticed that if you copy a Subversion repository with the Windoze
program Synchronize It! 2.82, the result can be checked

out from normally, but produces errors like this if you try to commit
changes:

Error: Commit failed (details follow):
Error: Can't create directory 'f:\Subversion
Error: Repositories\Bibliographies\db\transactions\3-1.txn': The system
cannot find
Error: the path specified.

(this is Tortoise output, but the substance of the svn response is the
same)

The repository can be fixed by dumping and loading, but it would still
be interesting to
know what is causing the problem. I thought it might have to do with
something that
Synchronize It! does with timestamps (creation times after modified
times), but making
these sensible doesn't fix the problem.
