Thanks Bert,


Since I see you are the one who reported this issue in the bug tracker and
to Technet, thanks for that.


Perhaps it would be a good idea to include some additional information in
the bug tracker regarding turning off search indexing and/or exclude the
folder from anti-virus scans to work around the problem.


It seems like the issue could be worked around. The problem occurs when
files are moved on top of other files. Couldn't Subversion simply delete
the files before it moves them to solve the issue? I know it would be
slightly slower to do this, so maybe that's a concern. However, if the
issue is not fixed in SP1 and no publicly available hotfix occurs,
subversion may have to work around this.

The best way to make Microsoft know that you care about this issue is to
file a support issue with them. (It is a confirmed issue, so the support
incident fee shouldn't be calculated for it).


Most likely corporate users can get a specific update for this issue when it
is available. (I don't know if that is already the case). For the Subversion
community it would be much better if we get it released in a service pack
(or automatic update.


Thanks for everybody who helps us get this issue resolved!

Erik, what is the method for this kind of feedback? Is it enough to leave a
message on the note? Or are you asking that we call our rep? Should we file
a ticket about it?

I forgot to include the Technet url





Someone posted about what is essentially Subversion issue 3574
(http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3574) on the technet
forums and received a response from Neal Christensen, the NTFS Lead
Developer. He indicated that this is a known issue in Windows 7, but was
not scheduled for inclusion in SP1 because it was not receiving much


If you have access to send Microsoft feedback on this issue, it is in
everyone's best interest if as many people do so as they can to get this
issue included in SP1. This seriously affects those using Windows 7 as both
a server and client for Subversion.
