You are correct that you can "co" on top of an existing working copy,
but that's not what I was doing. (Although it is what I *wanted* to do!)

Here's the command again:

        svn co svn://machine:port/project/trunk/script c:\project\script

This doesn't checkout the script folder, it checks out children of the
script folder. In other words, the c:\project folder does not contain a
.svn folder so if you try to checkout "[base url]/project/trunk" onto
"c:\project" after the above command it will complain because the
"script" folder already exists as a non-working copy (for lack of a
better term)

I agree, but then if you tried to do a checkout of Proj1/trunk to C:\tmp
I think you would get the same error I got.

As I mentioned to another poster I'm leaning towards changing the
release process. Instead of a pre-build that only checks out the script
folder, I will have the pre-build checkout the entire project folder.
The other change will be to remove the delete/update from the build
process since it is not necessary if the pre-build gets a fresh copy
from the repository.
