RE: File corruption issue

This error sounds like a Windows error, not something Subversion specific.


I think you should check the harddisk for errors (and maybe replace the
harddisk if you find more than a few errors or when the SMART status says
you should replace it).


(The lock file is actually a 0 bytes file that is used for synchronization
of multiple clients)

Good moring,


Some of our developers have been getting the following error for a few days
every time they try to update the code,


Error: Can't open file

Error: The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.


This happens with the use of TortoiseSVN or the svn command line client.


Has anyone seen this and if so what is the fix for it. I should mention
that svn clean does not work with this. The only way I have found to take
care if it is to remove the directory, reboot the system and then try to
remove the remnants and then do another checkout.
