Re: Win2k Server client NTFS corruption problems

I believe NTFS is journaled, it's pretty fault-tolerant.

I was suspicous of TortoiseSVN when Windows Explorer refused to browse the
directory ("directory inaccessible"). I thought maybe Tortoise did it while
color-coding the status icons.

We are now just running the command-line Subversion tools, so that should
help us figure out if it is Tortoise or not. All my cheerleading to get us
to use Subversion is haunting me right now, lol.
