The best place for this question is the Subversion Users list. Please
remove the Dev list from the Cc line when you reply.

A very common reason for Subversion to issue this error is if the
directory contains two files whose names differ only in case, and if
you are checking out to a case-insensitive file system, which it
looks like you are, since it looks like you're on Windows. Do you
have two similarly named files in this directory -- like
icehockey.cfm and IceHockey.cfm? If so, you should either remove or
rename one of these. You can do it by accessing the repository via
URLs, bypassing the local working copy. If your repository is
available via the URL "$REPO" then you could rename the offending file: svn rename$REPO/XtremeImages/IceHockey.cfm $REPO/XtremeImages/ IceHockey.bak.cfm or you could remove it: svn delete$REPO/XtremeImages/IceHockey.cfm
