Re: Error on update - can't copy x to x.tmp.tmp

Unfortunately I can't get the rm to work either. Is there a way to manually rollback commits? It looks like rev and revprops has an entry for every commit, but the other files I'm not so sure about. Can I just remove some of the latest files and "uncommit" that version?

  Is there any way to directly modify the repository to remove this bad entry? I'd even be fine to just completely remove the last commit, if that was possible.

You can directly remove a file from the repository, by using the URL in the command
svn rm <URL>

Might you have 2 files in the same directory with the same name,
differing only in case?

Do you have an on-access virus scanner running, and can you disable it
or tell it to ignore .svn directories?

Can you check out a fresh working copy from the same URL?
