First, you should put the file back on disk :)
Moving files away behind the back of SVN is never a good idea.

Then run 'svn resolve' again. When you are unsure what to choose, the option
to "merge" the files should be the best one. It will boil down 'add vs add'
to a text-conflict or perhaps even a clean merge, depending on file content.

There are more options (try the 'h' option to see them), but generally
any "merge" options in the conflict resolver will always produce a useful
result when possible.

Hope this helps!
