I dont want to use the TSVN repository browser, since it creates new
revisions for each modification in the repository. I wrote only about
one directory, but I need to handle a selection of bunches of directories.
As you've seen this is error prone and I need a revert functionality.
This is not available in TSVN repository browser.

Yeah. I read this "blow away and re-check out" often in SVN context. But the
directory is holds the (versioned) source code and the (unversioned) data.
So I have to rename the old dir, re-check out and merge manually a lot of
directories. Is the the only SVN solution?

In my example the "Product" is not a place holder for any product, but
a real directory name. I need also

That's why this is inappropriate:

As mentiond above that's no solution. I have seen that the x.y directory
is found in the file .svn/entries even if I use "svn revert". Is there no possibility to get ride of my mistake without blow away of
the directory
