Re: "File not found"/"URL non-existent" error?

If you have admin access to the repo, and you know what revision the problems started, and there have not been any good commits after that, its probably a good idea to do an svnadmin dump up to that revision and then load that into the repo. This way the mistake will not ever be in the repo and you will preserve history.

Another option would be to show the good revision in TortoiseSVN and then copy trunk or whatever folder it is to the head revision. You might have to copy it to an intermediate folder first.

Hope this helps,

Subject: "File not found"/"URL non-existent" error?

Hello,

Subversion 1.3.0
TortoiseSVN 1.3.2.
(using svnserve, not Apache)

When I access the repo-browser from the "TortoiseSVN" submenu, I can
see my repo, but when I try to view the contents of the top-level
directory, I get the following:
 - svn://127.0.0.1/<repo> <name>
   - <repo> <name>
     - Error * URL 'svn://127.0.0.1/<repo>%20<name>' non-existent in
that revision

When I look at earlier revisions, I can see everything just fine
(although there are a couple of other revisions where I get the above
error). The non-existence thing appears to be stopping me from doing
operations, though. I've tried deleting and re-adding, but when I do a
commit, it fails with a

Error File not found: transaction '728-1', path /EastCree Website/<filename>

message.

I don't really know what I've done, but I think the problem may have
arisen when I tried to do some remote administration from a Linux box,
and wasn't careful about escaping the space in the repo name.

Is it possible to eliminate everything that happened after a
particular earlier revision and make that one the new HEAD?

Thanks,

Fred.
