svn copy file already exist

Dear experts,

          I am facing an issue while trying to branch a project. Its not a
straight forward branching, the process I followed is as below

          I checked out trunk with an old revision number to my local
machine then I updated some files to newer revision. I then tried to branch
from my local copy, but the commit is failing with the error 'file already
exists' .

         The svn copy command that I tried is

         svn copy X -m "Creating
Branch for ..."

         The 'file already exists' is thrown for the file that I updated
individually after the checkout.

         Can anyone help me with this issue...

         The svn version that I am using is 1.5.4

with regards,
