# Re: Bug report - Subversion Exception

Dear Pawel,

Could you try to install the command line tools in TortoiseSVN and then try
to cleanup in the command line?

Something like this:
cd /d [drive and path to your repository]
svn cleanup

If this works then you should report the error on the mailinglist of
TortoiseSVN, https://tortoisesvn.net/community.html (I'm also active there
so I might be able to help)

Kind regards,
Daniel Sahlberg
