                I am using SVN command line client 1.6.2 on windows.

                I have following folder structure













                I have perform following local operations


changed Folder1's property.

Modified File1

Deleted Folder2


I would like to do the commit of following

Property change in Folder1

Deleted Folder2


But don't want to commit the changes done in File1.


How can I do it with one svn commit command ( atomic commit ).


If we use


Svn commit --m "msg" "Trunk\Folder1" "Trunk\Folder2"


It will work properly but will also commit the changes in


To avoid it if we use


Svn commit --m "msg" --depth=empty "Trunk\Folder1" "Trunk\Folder2\File3"
"Trunk\Folder2\File4" "Trunk\Folder2"


Commit fails as it does not get the File3, file4 on disk.


Svn commit --m "msg" --depth=empty "Trunk\Folder1" "Trunk\Folder2"


Commit fails as with error.

svn: Cannot non-recursively commit a directory deletion of a directory with
child nodes


Is this a bug or is there any way to perform atomic commit in the scenario


Thanks and regards,
