        No luck with the stop on copy option. Perhaps can I get the
proper steps to do what I need from someone?

                In Show Log, uncheck the "Stop on copy/rename" checkbox.

        TortoiseSVN doesn't automatically refresh the 'show log' view
when you uncheck the 'stop on copy/rename' option. Oddly, clicking
'Refresh' doesn't seem to help either (at least in the case where it's
already stopped at the copy). 'Next 100' is greyed out as well in this
case, but 'Show All' works as advertised. This is in version 1.5.9.
