I have a Windows 2003 Server that is using the latest Subversion and
Tortoise client software to pull files from a dedicated server. Twice this
machine had it's main Subversion-controlled directory get corrupted. Each
time I have had to reboot and let it CHKDSK the drive. This most recent
time the entire directory was lost, including uncommited files.
Once the directory is corrupted, it cannot be browsed to using Windows
Explorerer, even with TortoiseSVN removed. The error message is that the
directory is inaccessible. From a DOS box, the directory cannot be CD'd in
to. The DOS "copy" command was able to copy about 80% of the files.
Are there any known problems with the Subversion and TortoiseSVN clients on
Windows 2003 Server?
This machine has RAID (mirrored) drives, so it is unlikely to be a physical
media problem. We have other machines similarly configured, but this is the
only one that is suffering from corruption problems. I do not think that
simultaneous users are an issue (thought its possible since multiple people
can log in remotely).
I'm mostly wondering if there are any known issues regarding this. It's
rare to have NTFS corruption, so something odd is going on.
