RE: cannot break lock due to no matching lock-token

Thanks for replying.
I am using TortoiseSVN, which directs me to this mailing list for discussion. Pardon my amateurishness, could I use a local command line client (while keeping Tortoise resident) to execute this?

You don't say what client you're using, but it doesn't seem to be the
Subversion command-line client. Try asking on the relevant mailing
list for your client.

If you were using the command-line client, you'd use
"svn unlock --force". See these pages for details:


Kind regards,


Please direct all replies to the mailing list.

Does anyone know how I can clean up a missing lock-token?

A file was created and locked.  The file was unlocked and the project
the tagged folder was merged with an empty trunk and then the trunk
checked out.  A file in the project was locked, but later removed
without being unlocked.  Now the file does not exist in the trunk, but
any changes to the trunk cannot commit because "cannot verify lock on
path...  ; no matching lock- token available.  If you wish to break the
lock, use the 'Check for Modification' dialog" appears and prevents any
actions on the trunk (ie, delete all files).  I have tried checking for
modifications but none are listed (the file was deleted).
I cannot merge, delete, copy or anything.  The lock that was there is
not needed.  How do I remove this lock-token or whatever I need to do?
