Thanks Matt & Duncan for the replies. Yes I had meant "working copy" when I
wrote "local repository". Also I know this isn't a tortoiseSVN mailing list
so won't labor this point but I had in fact tried to move a couple of files
from one location to another in my working copy, but looks like I ended up
with the situation described at
ie "When you run an update, only the files already checked out will be
updated (or deleted, if they were deleted in the repository since you last
updated) - if new files have been added to the repository, or you if you
have deleted a file (or renamed a file), you will not get all of the files
in the current version. Again, only the files already on your hard drive
will be touched, and they can only be deleted or overwritten with the latest
version of the file."
Anyway to resolve this issue, I ended up deleting the working copy and
checking the whole repository out again. I don't know if there's an
easier/faster way of achieving this?
