Do you have two files in that directory whose names differ only in
case? For example, "IFD_asset_management_reports_appendix_2.pdf" and
"ifd_asset_management_reports_appendix_2.pdf" or
"IFD_asset_management_reports_appendix_2.PDF"? If so, you cannot
check that out to a case-insensitive file system, like the ones you
usually get with Windows or Mac OS X. You can check it out to a case-
sensitive file system, like the ones you usually get with Unix, Linux
and so forth.


svn ls "file:///C:/Work/Park/branches/Fall Release 2007"

to discover if there are two such conflicting files. If so, discover
(on your Unix machine, perhaps, or by using "svn cat" on both files
separately) which one you want to keep, and "svn rm" the URL to the
one you want to delete, or if you want to keep both, use "svn mv"
with URLs to rename one of them to a non-conflicting name.

There is a pre-commit hook you can install in the repository which
would prevent future commits of files whose names differ only in case
from something that's already in the repository, which would prevent
this situation in the future.
